Como Pickton FFA Chapter Annual Meal and Auction Fundraiser

The students of the Como-Pickton CISD FFA Chapter were determined to have a successful “stew and auction” this Spring because they were not able to hold their fundraiser in the Autumn of 2020 due to Covid-19 restrictions. The Spring event, held on Thursday March 11, 2021 was modified to become a ‘Baked Potato Supper and Auction” and it turned out great. A good crowd was already gathering inside the high school cafeteria prior to serving time at 6pm, and good interest was indicated in the items that were coming up for bid. In all there were 67 lots of auction items. The majority were student-built projects and others were new items donated by local businesses and members of the community.

Providing hospitality as the audience gathered were FFA Chapter members and officers, all wearing green chapter shirts. Officers are (shown L. to R.) Sentinel Freshman Landon Cummins, Secretary Sr. Maci Wright, Vice President Jr. Presley Cummins, President Sr. Katie Morgan, Cummins, Treasurer Jr. Kara Tifft, Reporter Jr. Leslie Galvan. Ag Instructors and FFA Advisors are Miss Chanda Neal and Michael Bowen.

Students with Betty Flora, honorary Como-Pickton FFA Member

As a special part of the evening, according to Miss Neal ” our FFA chapter took the time to recognize Mrs. Betty Flora for her contributions to our chapter and community over the years. She was inducted as an Honorary FFA Member. We also awarded her with a shop-made “God Made a Farmer” bench. 

Proceeds from the dinner and the auction amounted to over $15,000 and will be ised for FFA, FCCLA and Skills USA students programs at Como-Pickton CISD.
