The FFA Parade was another HUGE success for the participants, as well as those who viewed this years’ entries along the parade route. Congratulations to the STEM/ECHS campus for being awarded the Best of Theme trophy at the parade award ceremony. Special Thanks to Mr. Evelio Fernandez of Goya Foods for serving as this years’ Parade Marshal!

A Sale “Grand Total” along with a wrap up of the entire weekend activities will be in the April 4th edition of the Times Tribune.

On behalf of the students and CTE staff of Royal ISD, we would like to say Thank YOU again to all who make this great Community Tradition possible through your unwavering generosity and support!
