Things are a little different this year for meeting our LHS Recipient. With the Covid virus wrecking the plans of the Class of 2020 and because of social distancing we were not able to meet our recipient in person. We truly miss putting a face with the name we chose, visiting with them and learning more about their hopes, dreams and goals for their life. So we don’t have a picture from Awards Night, like we have in the past, because it was cancelled.
But I’m very happy to announce our Lufkin High School LAF Recipient this year. Her name is Alexis Ferguson. She has been active in FFA all 4 yrs at LHS. She has served in various different capacities like Historian, Sentinel, Fundraising and did service work on local, state and national levels during those yrs. She has shown pigs and lambs and learned life skills in the show ring and out. Alexis has also been active in Drug Free All Stars, Diamond Dolls and Kyssed Club. She works in her father’s business during the fall and works at a snow cone stand in the summer. All four years of high school she has been taking concurrent classes at Angelina Jr.College. Wow…what has she not done should be the question. Alexis wants to major in Speech Pathology, obtain her masters degree and be a speech therapist to work with children or in a hospital. With what she has accomplished so far I have no doubt she can reach that goal also. Best wishes to Alexis Ferguson.
