KLEIN, Texas – It was another record setting year for the Klein ISD FFA Livestock & Project Show that took place last week at the Klein ISD Multipurpose Center. This year, 547 students presented more than 700 projects including animals, floral arrangements, horticulture projects and science projects.

“We would like to say a special thanks to our supporters and the Klein community for coming out and supporting these students,” said CTE coordinator Dennis Pierce. “Without their support and dedication, the show would not be possible.”

Overall, show proceeds totaled $405,320. A new record was set for the grand champion horticulture project by Klein High student Michael Klein which sold to Spring Klein RV, Boat and Trailer Storage for $4,500.

This year also featured another record-setting feat when Klein Collins freshman Amanda Smee took home Grand Champion steer, heifer and broiler. Her broiler and steer earned her more than $10,000 in the auction.

“I’ve been participating in FFA and 4H since I was in third-grade,” said Smee. “I’ve been waiting to show in Klein ISD for a while so I figured, my first year I better start with a bang.”
