“I thoroughly enjoyed getting the opportunity to compete and represent Trinity Valley at the 2021 Texas Junior College Agriculture Association convention,” said club president Eskue. “This convention was a great way to end my sophomore year at TVCC and I am forever grateful for my team and advisors who have pushed me to get outside of my comfort zone and compete in speaking events.
