Cinco Honors FFA Teacher

Strong Katy History

“Katy FFA is not just a school organization,” says City of Katy Mayor Pro Tem, Chris Harris. “The Katy High School FFA program has been involved in helping the city in many ways. The FFA at KHS has been successful and continues that tradition because of the dedication of the students and teachers to carry on that legacy.”
