I will continue to pursue art for the rest of my life."
This morning Leanna May and Becca Chapa will complete their Houston Livestock Show Calf Scramble journey. Over the past year they chose a heifer, raised it, and submitted monthly reports as part of the calf scramble program. Congratulations ladies on a job well done!
THA Art IV Student - Bethany Brandt "Art has influenced my life by really letting me push myself. I have learned that taking an easy route to do things isn't always the most rewarding. I find that a challenge lets me rely more on creativity and allows me to grow as an artist, as well as advance my skill level."
THS Art IV Student - Daniella Gramlich "Art has always been a positive impact on my life. I was always doodling and drawing. Art has always calmed me and allowed me to create things from my wild imagination. For me, art is a sanctuary that keeps my mind at ease."
THS Art IV Student - Emma Beaube "I didn't intend on going into art my freshman year, but when I came to the fish-camp I was utterly captivated by the colors, the room, the smell of the paint - I was hooked! Since then, I've worked up to AP art where I am close to submitting my portfolio and getting ready to make a painting for the administrative building. Throughout my academic and extracurricular endeavors, coming to the art room has always been my chance to take a breath and relax while doing what I love."

Howdy! My name is Beth Lambert and I am currently serving as the Tarkington FFA President. As my time in Tarkington FFA comes to an end, I want to encourage everyone to find something in this great organization to participate in. There are career, speaking, and leadership events for everyone. Although, showing animals is a large part of my participation, you do not have to show animals, to be involved. I will be forever grateful for the life lessons, friendships, and opportunities this organization has afforded me. I hope that you take time to explore everything FFA has to offer. For the last time, Happy National FFA week!
My name is Chloe Jarvis. I am the committee chairman for the 22-23 year. FFA has given me so many new opportunities and experiences. In 8th grade my Greenhand officer team competed in chapter conducting and advanced to area. This year I competed in ag issues and also advanced to area. I show pigs and compete in county and major shows. I am very grateful for all the experiences FFA has given me.
Hi my name is Annabell Lindsey and I'm on the Tarkington FFA Chairman's committee. I’ve shown pigs and steers as my SAE projects in FFA. My experience over the last 6 years in Tarkington FFA has been amazing.
My years of being involved in FFA it has given me amazing opportunities to become a better version of myself. Through all of my LDEs and SAEs I have learned many skills that are going to brighten my future in more ways than one!
When I first started FFA I didn't know what I'd find. I wanted to be involved in Ag but hadn't expected to find such amazing people. I started doing Ag Advocacy, happy to have a speaking event and being able to talk about Ag. I loved being part of a team. By the end of the year, I had made amazing friends and decided to run for an office position, and was voted Reporter for our Chapter. I have made so many new friends, had wonderful experiences, and learned life lessons through Tarkington FFA
