The Huckabay Independent School District board of trustees recently voted against a resolution that would have excused student rodeo club members from absences accrued while participating in club-related events.
That vote has created quite a stir. Rodeo is a time-honored tradition in Erath County– home of the Cowboy Capital of the World– and that fact is evident in Huckabay, where a growing number of professional cowboys and cowgirls have laid their roots and are raising their children alongside families who have been in the area for generations. Huckabay’s athletic traditions include rodeo, and several ISD trustees voted in favor of recognizing the club as an extrcurricular. Expect the issue to arise again.
