Lytle FFA and Ag
I believe in the future of agriculture, with a faith born not of words but of deeds – achievements won by the present and past generations of agriculturists; in the promise of better days through better ways, even as the better things we now enjoy have come to us from the struggles of former years.
I believe that to live and work on a good farm, or to be engaged in other agricultural pursuits, is pleasant as well as challenging; for I know the joys and discomforts of agricultural life and hold an inborn fondness for those associations which, even in hours of discouragement, I cannot deny.
I believe in leadership from ourselves and respect from others. I believe in my own ability to work efficiently and think clearly, with such knowledge and skill as I can secure, and in the ability of progressive agriculturists to serve our own and the public interest in producing and marketing the product of our toil.
I believe in less dependence on begging and more power in bargaining; in the life abundant and enough honest wealth to help make it so–for others as well as myself; in less need for charity and more of it when needed; in being happy myself and playing square with those whose happiness depends upon me.
I believe that American agriculture can and will hold true to the best traditions of our national life and that I can exert an influence in my home and community which will stand solid for my part in that inspiring task.

Last week, the Ag Mechanics Show in San Antonio started with the project line and move in beginning at midnight Thursday night. Mr. Flores spent his 5th and final all-nighter waiting in line to get student projects entered in the San Antonio stock show. The show ended Sunday morning. Our Lytle students competed with FFA and 4-H communities over the whole state, Panhandle to the Valley, El Paso to Port Arthur.
We just finished contest at Sam Houston State University and I could not wait to share! The State LDE competition was such a fun and learning experience. So proud that Lytle was able to be represented in the top 24 when 601 students competed. Happy Holidays all.
Yesterday Lytle FFA took the "Magic School SUV" to Poteet High School where they competed at the Wintergarden District contest. 8th Grader Campbele Aldridge competed against 7 other Greenhand Creed speakers and came out on top, placing 1st and advancing to Area next Monday in Robstown, Texas. We also took a Greenhand Quiz team who with great efforts placed 4th overall. Team members include: Katara Whitfield, Alex Rodriguez, Fatima Montes, and Rylynn Null (all 8th Graders). We all plan to cheer Campbele on at Area Contest.
