Shelnutt recently received a four-year $18,000 college scholarship from the
Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. The
award was presented during the Texas FAA state convention held July 15, 2015,
in Corpus Christi.
A former Granbury FFA member, Shelnutt was
a member of the GHS Class of 2015. She plans
to attend Texas A&M University to major in animal science.
Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo awarded seventy scholarships totaling $1.26
million to FFA members during the state organization’s event. Shelnutt’s classmate, Sam Spradlin, also
received the same scholarship award during the Texas 4-H Roundup in June.
Texas FFA is the nation’s largest state FFA association with a membership of
more than 109,000 members and 1,032 local FFA chapters. FFA gives students the
opportunity to apply practical classroom knowledge to real world experiences
through local, state, and national competitions.
