Teacher of the Year
Miss Joy Grabeel was recognized as the Teacher of the Year.  Miss Grabeel has been teaching in the Dallas County School District for 17 years, teaching special education and English Language Arts at Buffalo High School.  She was nominated by student Paige Garrett who wrote, “Miss Grabeel has been my speech coach for three years, and I couldn't have asked for a better one. She always takes care of her kids and watches out for them. She listens to them and takes their opinions seriously. I'm a senior this year, so this is my last year to have her as a teacher. That makes me sad, but I will never forget Miss Grabeel, the best teacher and coach I've ever had.” Miss Grabeel was also honored with a plaque and gift card.

School Farm Welcomes New Animals
The Buffalo High School agriculture program's school farm welcomes new animals. Five agriculture students each purchased a crossbred market hog to raise and exhibit at the Dallas County Livestock Show Thursday, June 23, 2016.  Ag construction students built the floors and pens that house the pigs inside the barn.  The students also replumbed water lines to the waterers. 

The students' hogs weigh approximately 85 pounds right now. They will be weighed in for the fair April 23 and again June 23 for the market hog show.  The finish show weight should be about 260 pounds. The pigs will be judged on rate of gain and muscle mass. They will also be judged in an on-foot class with other market hogs comparable to their weight. The show is a terminal show in which the pigs will be sold after the show in an auction. The pigs will be purchased by local businesses and individuals that come to bid on the hogs and support the students in their agriculture projects. Other businesses and family members may also support the students with added money to the hogs.

The agriculture program and students would like to thank show pig producer, Joe Roberts of Fair Grove, for selling them pigs for a fair market value to help the students sell their pigs for a profit.
