Local student captures win at Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo

FORT WORTH – Jenna Hoffmann, a FFA member from Vidor, captured Junior Calf Champion Heifer in the Junior Maine-Anjou Breeding Heifer Show at the 2018 Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo on January 21. The 2018 Show is hosting junior cattle exhibitors from across Texas competing for awards and $36,210 in premiums.

Of the 33,000 entries at the nation’s longestrunning livestock show, the livestock exhibited by the more than 11,500 junior exhibitors are among the best market animals in the country. While the livestock are impressive, one of the Show’s main objectives is to support the professional and leadership development efforts offered by the 4-H and FFAQ programs in Texas.

Story Time

Story Time was held at the Vidor Public Library on Thursday, January 18, 2018. Program Coordinator Megan Ridlespurge read “If You Give A Moose A Muffin” by Laura Joffe Numeroff. “If a big hungry moose comes to visit, you might give him a muffin to make him feel at home. If you give him a muffin, he’ll want some jam to go with it. When he’s eaten all your muffins, he’ll want to go to the store to get some more muffin mix.” The children made moose hats for the craft.

Maintenance Department named VISD Employees of the Month

By Sally Andrews Coordinator of Community Relations

 

The Vidor Independent School District named their entire maintenance department as their January employees of the month at Monday’s Board of Trustees meeting at the VISD Administrative Annex. Nominated by Oak Forest principal Carolyn Wedgeworth, the department is consistently thanked by VISD employees for the many things they do in the district, most of which the public doesn’t realize. Most recently, they created a unique setting for Oak Forest Elementary after Hurricane Harvey inundated the building and students and staff were split between two other campuses.

 

Principal Wedgeworth says, “These employees worked tirelessly to ensure Oak Forest faculty and students would have a safe and comfortable learning environment. The men spent exhausting hours moving furniture, boxes, and school supplies.
