    State Stock Show

     

    Newcastle FFA members have been busy making the major stock shows this past month.  Participating in the Fort Worth Stock Show this year were Victoria Richards and Jacob McMillan.  Victoria showed her Beefmaster Heifer and placed tenth in her class. Victoria did an excellent job with this project this year, showing the heifer earlier in the year at the West Texas Fair and Rodeo.  Congratulations Victoria, we are proud of your hard work and dedication to this project.

              Victoria also showed two gilts in the Open Swine Breed Show at the Fort Worth Stock Show. Her gilts did not place, but Victoria showed well and exhibited top projects.  Jacob McMillan also showed at the Open Breed Show placing 9th (Victoria exhibited this project as it was in the same class as Jacob’s other gilt) and 5th with his September Chester gilts.  Jacob also showed at the Fort Worth Stock Show Junior Barrow Show. Jacob did not place, but showed like a true veteran of the ring, and we are proud of his efforts with these projects.

    The Texas Elite Showcase in Kerrville is a major Texas Pork Producers stock show that Victoria Richards participated in early this month.  Victoria did not place with her cross gilts, but once again demonstrated her expertise in showmanship and dedication to her projects.

    Later this month and during Spring Break, Jacob McMillan will return to the ring in the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo with a Chester gilt in the Junior Breeding Swine Show and a Chester barrow in the Junior Barrow Show.  Jacob raised these animals himself out of a sow that he raised and showed last year. We are proud of your efforts Jacob and wish you luck at the last two shows of the season for Newcastle FFA.

  • Ranger College Announces Reduction in Tuition for Dual Credit Courses

    Ranger College has announced a reduction in tuition for Dual Credit Courses and a continuation of the PELL Grant for students who qualify.

    “In an effort to increase accessibility of dual credit courses to all students, Ranger College recently announced a change in the tuition rate for academic dual credit courses beginning in the Fall semester of 2019. Academic courses will be $50 per credit hour. CTE courses will continue at the $80 per credit hour rate due to the higher cost of delivering those types of classes.” -- Ranger College Spring Newsletter

    Newcastle High School contributes ½ the cost of Dual Credit Courses, so the cost to the students at Newcastle High School for Academic courses will be $25 per credit hour and $40 per credit hour for CTE courses.

    Ranger College was also notified by the U.S. Department of Education that the experimental Pell grant program has been extended to the 2019-2020 school year.  Students planning to take Dual Credit and/or Concurrent courses at Newcastle next year are encouraged to complete their FASFA applications for the 2019-2020 school as soon as possible.
