State Horse Show Results:
Students competed in the Horse Bowl and Hippology Contest which was held on Saturday, Jan. 16 at Crockett County Middle School in Alamo. Our Senior High Team placed 2nd and went to compete at the State Hippology Contest in Knoxville. The team members were: Larrya Stegall, Kimberley Snyder, Caitlin Mitchell and Emily Ison. While in Knoxville, Larrya and Kimberley did a team presentation and won first place. They are invited to attend the Southern Regional Horse Show to make their presentation there. Emily Ison prepared a speech for the Public Speaking Contest and she came in 3rd place. This was a great experience for all fo the students. They deserve a pat on the back for their efforts with the busy schedules that they have!
