South Haven FFA and 4-H Members do Well at Kansas State Fair

Grace Theurer, junior and FFA member at South Haven,  was pretty sure she had a good breeding gilt all summer as she prepared her for the county fair. Grace named her pig June, and she and June became fast friends. At the Sumner County Fair, June took top breeding gilt honors and won Grace a buckle. But there were more shows to come. Grace exhibited June at the South Haven Fair, where June again won. Now it was time to prepare for the Kansas State Fair in Hutchinson. Grace showed a market hog Saturday, and came in 5th in her class. That was not where she wanted to place, but she had another shot to do better with June on Sunday, and June came through again. 

June placed 1st in her class of Dark AOB (all other breeds) gilts. June is a Spot hog. That meant she would come back in for the Champion Drive of Dark AOB class winners. And again, the judge picked June as the winner. That meant chilling till the last class of commercial gilts had been shown and the champion commercial gilt was picked about 4 hours later. It was time for June to go back in the ring for the Grand Champion drive. This was June's day, and Grace came away with the Grand Champion Gilt banner and award. When asked if June is done competing, Grace said, "No, she is going to the KJLS and to the American Royal." Grace also exhibited a cake in the 4-H baking contest, where she received a blue ribbon. 

Grace's brother Cole Theurer, Happy Hustlers 4-Her,  showed his Berkshire breeding gilt to a 3rd place finish in her class. Cole was also the winner of the Grand Prize Drawing in the Grand Drive - use of a trailer for a year. 

Ethan Theurer, FFA member, showed a commercial breeding gilt and placed first in his class, so contended for Champion Commercial Breeding Gilt. Placing second in the same class was Dylan DeWitt, FFA member,  with his gilt. Ethan also had another gilt that placed 7th in the same class. 

Dylan also showed a market goat in the Market Goat Show on Saturday. He placed 7th with his goat. 

Other South Haven 4-H members who exhibited at the State Fair include Alex Carothers, who received a blue on her photography, and Jacee Theurer, who received a blue ribbon on her quilt and a red on her pie. 

Congratulations to our South Haven exhibitors at the State Fair!

Inside Story on Careers

One of the state board of education KANSAS CAN goals is for all JH and HS students to have an individual plan of study that helps them prepare for college and careers.  South Haven is using Career Cruising to help students learn about careers, think about their post high school options, and plan for life after 12th grade.  Students are working in advisory groups during one or two Cardinal Times a month as part of this state wide initiative to ensure students have the necessary skills and plans to be successful after graduation. Students can login to Career Cruising at home using the link on the front page of the website, or on their school page. The link below contains more information about Career Cruising.
