Yoakum FFA Venture Present raises $173,000 for college kids | Lavaca

The Yoakum FFA raised approximately $173,000 for its students this month during the annual Yoakum Project Show.

The total exceeds last year’s total of approximately $142,000 and helps support the students who raised the animals being sold.

“It’s really great to work in a community like Yoakum where there is so much support for our students. The increase in our sales shows that our local businesses and community members support our exhibitors in their efforts and want to see them succeed in their activities,” said Laura Johnson, Agricultural Sciences teacher and Yoakum FFA Advisor.

The students and their families put a lot of effort into their projects. The money from the show will do them a lot, Johnson said.

“The money they make from these projects will enable them to achieve whatever goals they set out to achieve. Whether that’s going to college, university, trade school, or even stepping straight into the workforce, these students will have the tools to be able to take those first steps,” she said.

She also emphasized that she and all the students thank the people who donated to the exhibitors to support their projects.

“Without you, none of this would be possible,” Johnson said. “We would also like to thank our Yoakum Stock Show Board for all the behind the scenes work they do to make this event happen for our exhibitors.”
