Students build desk for FFA philanthropist
MISSION — For students in Sharyland High School’s Future Farmers of America (FFA) shop class, creating handmade art is nothing new, but when it comes to constructing a desk for one of FFA’s top scholarship contributors, the pressure was on.
Dedicated to the challenge of building a desk to show their appreciation, the students used old-world craftsmanship and attention to detail complete with dovetailing on desk drawers made from aged red oak lumber to earn top awards at the recent 2012 Rio Grande Valley Livestock Show. Their desk, with an accompanying chair and lamp, was selected as grand champion shop project among over 450 other entries.
