Ty Robertson, a Granbury FFA officer, won reserve grand champion honors at the San Angelo Stock Show & Rodeo on February 20, 2014.

A Granbury High School senior, Robertson restored a hitch wagon from the ground up. The wagon was used as a primary tool in the 1800’s as a way of hauling firemen, hoses, and other equipment to and from fires.

The project began in late July, when Robertson traveled to South Dakota to purchase the more than 100-year-old wagon he used for the project. The substantial renovation that included hours of work culminated in a white wagon emblazoned with “F.W.F.D.” across its side.

Robertson’s father, Homer, is Fort Worth Fire Department captain with over thirty years of service.

In January, the GHS student was a big winner at the Junior Agricultural Mechanics Projects Show, a competition at the Fort Worth Stock Show.

In addition to his leadership role with the Granbury FFA, Robertson also serves an Area VIII officer.
