The 2010 and 2011 stock shows for Stockdale FFA advisor Joshua Heimann were chaotic. There were so many animals and with so little room, it was impossible to transport all the animals to the show barn. He knew something had to change. The old trailer was rusty and had many sharp edges on it causing many scrapes. The trailer also looked poorly on our FFA.

Mr. Heimann and his fearless squad of officers knew something had to be done, so they called a private meeting. They all sat down one early morning when the dew was still fresh on the lilies. They agreed on the fact that they had to buy a new trailer for the upcoming stock shows; however, everyone was puzzled on how they could come up with the money.

“We could have a bake sale,” said senior reporter Mikey Opela. It was a great idea, but the officers knew that it would take more than just a bake sale to bring home the trailer. It was impossible to make the money without the help of other people. Mr. Heimann said we should call upon different members from the community who could help.

With sponsorships, we were able to come up with one of the best trailers that Stockdale, Wilson County, and maybe even all of Texas have ever seen. This is a list of all the sponsors: Brahma Express, Maham Corp., J.O. Brumlow, Lester and Ginger Jackson, Camper’s Cove RV Park, Rons Auto Sales, What’s Brewing/Kitchen Pride/ Crepe Landia/ Humble House Foods, Bethany and Brylee Heimann, Josh and Whitney Heimann, B&D Construction, Central Texas Hunting Supply, Nora and Chris Compton/Claire Starcke, Bill’s Tractor and Equipment, Hartman Farms, Kyndall Laughlin, Kenzie Laughlin, Bryson Laughlin, The Texas Ranch, Polecat’s, A-1 Scale Service, The GFP group, A.D.A. Show Pigs, San Antonio Livestock Show Ambassador Committee, Tommie Vaughn Motors, All Tucked Inn, Legend Concrete LLC, Cutburth Construction, Bang Service, DNL Full Throttle Pipeliners, Stockdale Independent School District, the Stockdale FFA members (2012-13), Weston Services, J R Sitework, Stockdale FFA Booster Club, and Hodge Electric. We want to thank all of the sponsors greatly because without all their help, we never would have been able to have our great trailer.

Jesse Opela is the reporter for the Stockdale FFA organization.
