On January 18, 2017 the SFCHS FFA chapter took the FFA reward Trip to the National Western Stock Show on FFA Day in Denver, Colorado. There were thirty- two members along with Advisor Tiffany Poet. For many members, it was their first time attending the National Western Stock Show. “It was a lot of fun, it was scary at first because I didn't know where to go,” told us freshmen Perla Yañez.

There were many events going on through the day. In the morning some members attended Reigning Contest while others walked around and shopped. “I had a blast. It was a great experience to have with friends. I loved everything about it, from the food to the rodeo,” said freshmen Alondra Gomez.

The chapter attended the Pro Rodeo.”I absolutely love Steer Wrestling, because of how intense it is and how into it the cowboys are,” said Reagan Beims, junior. The chapter was able to watch member Joel Hill show his steer in showmanship classes before heading home. The chapter hopes to make this a semi-annual event, because it was both fun and educational.
