WACO (October 9, 2013) -- The Heart O' Texas Fair and Rodeo honored a group of West students during tonight's rodeo events.
West High School's FFA Officers were honored and presented with a check for five thousand dollars from the H.O.T. Fair and Rodeo.
The organization lost their agriculture building in the explosion last April.
Most of their equipment was also ruined inside the building from the rain in the days following the blast.
The group shows livestock at competitions as well as judges competitions among many other activities they're involved in.
Officers say FFA teaches them speaking and leadership skills as well as other life skills.
