EC FFA Radio Broadcast Team earns state victory
East Central FFA Radio Broadcast team of (from left) Kyle Brown, Morgan Harper, and Alexis Wagner proudly display their state-winning banner at the Texas FFA State Leadership Development Contest in Huntsville Dec. 3.
The East Central FFA traveled to Huntsville Dec. 2-3 for the State FFA Leadership Development Contest at Sam Houston State University. In the state of Texas, 611 teams competed for the honors of state champion, with the East Central FFA Radio Broadcast team bringing home the state title.
Chapters had to qualify at the District and Area levels before reaching state. Only the top 20 teams advanced to the state level for the semi-finals and finals. East Central FFA members Kyle Brown, Morgan Harper, and Alexis Wagner qualified from the semifinal round to advance to the finals on Dec. 3.
The East Central FFA Radio topic was the newly mandated “Quality Counts Program.” Students had to present a 6- to 8-minute live radio broadcast on an FFA-related topic to a panel of judges. Students across the state chose various topics that represented their region.
The East Central FFA incorporated their topic and the impact that the San Antonio Livestock Show has on the economy. Students received their blue and gold banner at the awards ceremony held at Johnson Coliseum.
