Tyler County Fair Recap
Once again, Warren FFA and 4H students dominated at the Tyler County Fair. We placed 31 animals in the sale, winning Grand Champion in 5 out of 6 categories (steers, swine, goats, boilers, and rabbits), and Reserve Champion in that 6th category (lambs)! These kids have worked tirelessly for many months, and it was gratifying to see the fruits of those labors. We send out special congratulations to all Fair participants; you represented Warren well. We also thank Ag teachers Mr. Rex Currie, Mr. Matt Swinney, and Ms. Ashlyn Pigg for all their work and support. We also appreciate the many supporters of our kids at the sale; they couldn’t have done it without you!
