SILSBEE, Texas — A Silsbee Independent School District student brought her talent to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo and won big.
Kylee Champagne, a Silsbee ISD freshman, and her steer named Geronimo “wowed the judges” and placed first in class for the Calf Scramble show.
“Which is a huge accomplishment on the big stage of the HLSR,” district officials said in a release.
Champagne also won the scramble essay contest. She was not the only student that represented the Tigers well at the rodeo.
Ryan Broussard, who is also a Silsbee ISD freshman, and his steer named Jet made a great showing in the Market Steer Show, competing against a tough class of nearly 50 other steers.
Champagne, Broussard and several other Silsbee FFA show team members will compete in the upcoming YMBL livestock show beginning March 23, 2023.
