HHS and South FFA teams take on the 2021 Rio Grande Valley Livestock Show

The Harlingen High School and Harlingen High School South FFA teams showed their animals and exhibited their projects at the 2021 Rio Grande Valley Livestock Show which took place from March 11-21.  In order to keep everyone safe, many adjustments were made to this year’s show including limiting attendance and excluding certain events. However, HCISD students did not let anything stop them from performing their best and bringing home many ribbons and awards.
