To support the next generation of Texas producers and landowners, Heritage Land Bank held a contest in which local FFA chapters could apply to win funds for their chapter in the form of a grant. Heritage Land Bank set out to give away a total of $3,000 in grants to three deserving FFA chapters.
The three recipients of the first Heritage Proud Grants are Bland FFA, $1,500 grant; Lindale FFA, $1,000; and Rusk FFA, $500.
Heritage Land Bank held a check presentation and celebration for the students of Rusk FFA on March 19 at Rusk High School.
Check presentations for the remaining chapters will be held in their respective communities.
