Star of Texas shines brightly for EC FFA
East Central’s Amy Moran exhibits the grand champion percentage Boer doe during the Star of Texas Fair & Rodeo in Austin.
Two East Central students earned champion or reserve champion banners during the 2012 Star of Texas Fair & Rodeo in Austin in March.
Amy Moran took home a fist full of ribbons and banners in the junior Boer goat show.
In the class four division, Moran’s percentage doe placed second. In class nine and 13, Moran’s doe placed first and was named full-blood Junior Division winner.
To conclude Moran’s Star of Texas experience, she took top honors in the open division, with her entries being selected as grand champion.
In the junior heifer show, Stephanie Geistweidt earned a first place in the class and a reserve division honor with her Limousin heifer.
Lexie Ricks also earned a first place with her Brehm Limousin heifer.
During the market turkey show, Jordan Hevner placed seventh with her hen entry, while Jared Maron placed 11th with his turkey hen.
Aaron Maron placed eighth and Johnna Pieniazek placed ninth in the turkey tom show.
In the unique style of the Star of Texas livestock show, exhibitors have a variety of nontraditional events in which to compete. Rodeo Austin’s Eco Art Youth Recycling Contest gives students the chance to revitalize recycled items to create a work of art, a functional piece, or anything else that showcases innovation through re-used materials. In this year’s event, Robin Ott placed fourth overall.
