Waxahachie FFA shines at 2021 Ellis County Youth Expo

At the conclusion of the 2021 Ellis County Youth Expo, Waxahachie ISD students earned two Overall Grand Champions, three Reserve Overall Grand Champions, eight Breed or Division Champions, four Reserve Breed or Division Champions, and 18 Class winners. 

Forty Waxahachie FFA members proudly walked their livestock projects one more time through the sale ring on Saturday, April 3. 

“We couldn’t be prouder of each and every one of our students who participated with our show team this year,” said Waxahachie FFA advisor Jake Mullican. “We want to thank all of our parents, admin, alumni, and sponsors that helped these kids along the way.” 

Waxahachie FFA Ag Mechanic exhibitors kicked off the ECYE with an outstanding job. These students brought 10 projects to show this year and walked away with six class winners, four Division Champions, Reserve Overall Grand Champion, and Overall Grand Champion for the 2021 Ellis County Youth Expo. Two Waxahachie projects qualified for sale as well. 

“Words cannot even express how proud we are of these ladies and gentlemen,” said Mullican. “We are so thankful for all of our friends, family and supporters along the way. Congratulations to all!”
