Bexar County FFA, S.A.L.E. honor scholars
SAN ANTONIO -- In ceremonies held June 28 at James Madison High School, 18 FFA students from Bexar County, including four FFA members from East Central, received scholarships totaling $288,000 from the San Antonio Livestock Exposition, Inc. (S.A.L.E.).
East Central FFA members receiving scholarships were Amy Castleman, Levi Hevner, Michael Moczygemba, and Evan Pieniazek.
The reception was held at the newly renovated North East Independent School District’s Agriscience Magnet Program Complex located on the grounds of James Madison High School.
S.A.L.E. President Fred Petmecky, S.A.L.E. Scholarship Committee Chairman Tony Magaro, and various other S.A.L.E. volunteers presented the students with their scholarships. These, along with numerous other FFA and 4-H scholarships, are just a small part of the $9 million in education the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo will commit to education this year alone. These contributions, as announced in May at the organization’s annual meeting, bring the organization’s total contribution to date to over $113 million.
S.A.L.E. has a rich tradition and history of stewardship to the community and the agriculture industry. With a clear vision of the future, a successful past, and continual dedication from more than 5,000 volunteers, S.A.L.E. will continue to provide wholesome family entertainment and be a pillar of strength and support to the youth of Texas.
