Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples honored Sabrina Torres, a senior at Jourdanton High School in Jourdanton, as the winner of the Texas Department of Agriculture’s monthly GROW award. The award Gives Recognition for Outstanding Work to middle and high school students who demonstrate leadership and excellence inside and outside the classroom.

Sabrina was chosen for demonstrating leadership in her school activities, as well as a commitment to family and community service. Sabrina spends much of her time working with Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA), and has been actively involved since her freshman year and currently serves as a region officer and on the FCCLA executive council where she helps plan regional and state meetings.

At FCCLA competitions, Sabrina has excelled in both team and interpersonal communication events, including a gold medal at the national competition for her project that illustrated how images depicting negative body language could have an inflammatory influence on her fellow students.

She also has contributed to community-service projects such as blood drives, drives to help Bastrop fire victims, and Pennies for Patients, and has helped deliver Christmas gifts to Santa Rosa Hospital. She also is a member of the El Calvario Baptist Church.

After high school, Sabrina plans to attend the University of Texas at San Antonio and major in speech pathology.

Staples established the GROW award to celebrate outstanding student leaders who demonstrate excellence in either their academic or extracurricular activities.

To nominate a promising middle or high school student, visit the TDA website at TexasAgriculture.gov. One GROW award winner is chosen monthly. Nominations for next month’s award are due by Saturday, Feb. 1.
