Craig Ballew wins Calf Scramble  
 Craig Ballew won the calf scramble in Fort Worth to earn $500 towards the purchase of a show animal for next year.
The Rusk County Youth Project Show is March 3-5 in Henderson.  OISD will have several students with projects and animals in the show.  The local buyers' group is asking supporters of FFA and OISD to contribute to the group so our students can receive an appropriate amount on the purchase of their animal or project.  Often, small school students do not receive the support that the larger districts' students get in the sale.  Please help support our students by making a contribution.  Checks can be made out to: Rusk County Youth Projects Show and can be given to the campus offices, the admin annex, or to Mr. Meadows at Texas Bank and Trust.
