76th Annual Katy ISD FFA Livestock Show & Katy Rodeo Takes Place at New Facilities  

KATY [February 8, 2019] –  For 76 years now, the Katy Independent School District FFA Livestock Show has provided opportunities for students to develop and showcase their talents in a diverse range of agricultural pathways.  This year the Katy ISD FFA Livestock Show & Katy Rodeo will take place at the new Gerald D. Young Agricultural Sciences Center.

“This is a historical year for the Katy ISD FFA students because not only will they be presenting their yearlong projects in a brand new facility, they will also be competing for prestigious recognitions and scholarships in a more modern and spacious facility,” said Director of Career & Technical Education Dr. Sarah Martin.  “As a result of the Katy FFA program many students become our next veterinarians, engineers, teachers among other industry professions,” added Martin.

As part of the activities and celebrations, Katy ISD will be officially dedicating the Gerald D. Young Agricultural Sciences Center, the L.D. Robinson Pavilion and the W.E. “Billy” Morgan Rodeo Arena on Saturday, February 16 between 12:30 – 1:00 p.m.
