Members of the Bowie High School Chapter of FFA were recognized for their work during the past year at Monday’s annual parent-member banquet.
Not only were students honored for their accomplishments, but the senior parents received a special thank you for their support of the student and chapter.
Star Awards went to Kinley Bros for Star Greenhand Production and Madelyn Hopkins received Star Greenhand Agribusiness. Both of these students will compete at the area contest on May 16.
The Ed Cordero Legacy Award was presented to a pair of FFA members who were chosen by the faculty for the “legacy” they will leave on the campus. The awards honor the memory of the late Ed Cordero, longtime BHS agriculture instructor who died in August 2021 after a battle with cancer.
The eighth grade Cordero legacy award went to Kinley Bros and the senior award went to Kerstin Wolfe.
