GIRLS STATE REPORT
SENIOR HANNAH LEAVITT
I first would like to thank the American Legion for giving me the opportunity to attend Girls State. I was definitely an experience starting with the fact I have never flown on a plane before. With all my anxiety built up, I scared Carly when she found me sitting in the terminal by myself. We boarded the plane and I had a small panic attack right after my dad had texted me and told me not to. Sorry Dad. All was well when we arrived to Seguin. During registration I was assigned to City A-Azaleas and the Federalist Party. We attended seminars, talent shows, and got the privilege to sit in on a mock house and senate parliamentarian. I even got to meet the first lady, Cecilia Abbot. Girls State was a great learning experience of how the Texas government works and how other types of governments worked. I highly suggest this year’s junior girls to look into attending Girls State this upcoming summer. They definitely would not regret it!
The senior captains perform their last coin toss before the playoff game last Thursday against the Valley Patriots.
The swifts ended their great season with an extremely hard fought battle on both ends of the field. Unfortunately, the Patriots defense was hard to break, and their offense was quick and strong. The Swifts came up short to lose the bi-district game, but they gained new experience and acquired many new skills for next year.
Nazareth FFA has started cooking the hams from their annual meat sale. The organization sold 865 hams already, and they have more to be sold. Pictured are students putting hams on the fire during the 5:30 a.m. shift.
The 7th annual Nazareth Lamb jackpot and clinic was a success, with 77 lambs showed. Robert Scott was the judge of the show. Thank you to Mark Kleman and Lori Johnson for helping with the show, and thanks to Cole Kleman and Garrison Kleman for being ring help.
