BRAWLEY – During the last Brawley Union High School District board meeting on April 9th, the trustees honored several high achieving individuals and clubs for honors they had earned.

Brawley FFA 2014

Among the honorees was the Brawley FFA Club for their success at the county fair. Entering the fair entails responsibility of learning to track money, learning budgets and the ability to present themselves and their animal.

 

According to FFA Advisor Michelle Taylor, most students spend 100 plus hours working with their animal from the time they purchase their animal to the time they show at the fair.

 

The Brawley FFA had 5 out of 10 contestants in the Small Animal Round Robin, many in the Large Animal Round Robin, taking first in both, and had several Supreme Grand Champions.
