FFA Spotlight: Freshman- Kathy Virrueta


What made you join FFA? Being able to see my older sister be able to create so many new friendships and memories with our chapter, I knew I would love to be able to do that!

What is your biggest accomplishment within the chapter? My biggest accomplishment has been getting Hill County Intermediate Showmanship Champion last year! That was my first ever rabbit show and I walked out with my first buckle!

How many years have you been involved in the chapter? I have only been apart of this chapter for two years, but I can’t wait to see what I can accomplish for the next ones to come!

What has been your favorite memory¬† in FFA? There have been so many memories that it’s just so hard to choose from! One of the top ones has to be going to the FFA State Convention. I spent a full week just with our officer team, making new friends, trying new things, and wasting an unnecessary amount of money at the shops!

If you could give the new members a piece of advice, what would it be? My advice to new members would be to not be afraid to loose, there will be times where you might not win an award or place at a contest , this is all just part of the experience, there will always be another chance to try again!
