The Colony FFA Ag Mechanics built a custom gate for the Chester Boyd Ag Facility this year and have competed at multiple competitions across the state. This group project was designed back in June and constructed throughout the school year. These students have not just promoted themselves but also The Colony FFA, The Colony High School, and the city of The Colony. This project has received a blue ribbon at every contest it has been entered in as well as multiple other projects. There are multiple designs present on this gate that have never been done before ranging from the custom CNC cutout these students designed and program to the latch system for the wood panels they came up with (still have not seen any other gate designer or manufacturer use this)!

 
Please feel free to admire the hard work that John GagneSamuel Starkey, and Collin Lesh have put countless hours into this school year just outside the Ag Shop in the C and B hallway.
 
Contest Placings is as follows:
 
Denton County Youth Fair:
  • Class Grand Champion (8 other gate entries)
  • Division Grand Champion (18 Projects in Division)
  • Finished 3RD Overall
Texas A&M Kingsville:
                –       Class Reserve Grand Champion (6 other gates)
  • 3rd in Division (21 in Division)
Blinn College:
  • Class Reserve Grand Champion (28 other gate entries)
  • 5TH in Division (45 in Division)
 
With this only being the second year as a FFA Chapter, the success that we are having is all in thanks to the faculty and staff that help these students throughout the school year as well as the support you all have shown them.
