Freshman and Sophomore year, I competed in many LDE’s and CDE’s including the Quiz contest, Public Relations, Radio Broadcasting, and Agricultural Sales as well as being on the Burkburnett FFA Officer Team. The summer going into junior year, my amazing AG teachers, Ms. Recer and Mr. Lopp encouraged me to take a big step in my agriculture career by raising and showing livestock. This past year, I showed a Chianina heifer named Piper who won Grand Champion Heifer at the Wichita County Junior Livestock Show and placed first in her class at the Ft. Worth Livestock Show and Rodeo. Those moments are some of my biggest agricultural accomplishments so far and I am looking forward to this upcoming year. For my senior year, I am showing another Chianina heifer and taking on a new project of showing sheep. Additionally, I will be serving as the Burkburnett FFA Chapter President of which I am very excited to help the chapter grow and gain members from various educational and agricultural backgrounds. Agriculture has been a very important part of my past three years of high school along with many other activities. I am a member of the National Honors Society, PALS (High School mentor), Student Council, S2S (new student mentor), and my school’s varsity volleyball team. I am determined to make my last year of high school memorable and embrace all the opportunities that will help me reach my goal of attending Texas A&M University to study in the Agriculture Business or Communications Programs. FFA and showing livestock has been an amazing and unexpected experience for me that I am excited to continue and round out by being a member of the NRS Show Team!

At the very young age of 6, I had a project in the barn. I began with horses, continued with goats, and now I spend my time with my true passion, which is cattle.

I have learned so much from this industry, especially when it comes to taking care of and maintaining quality show animals. Over the past 3 years, I have been blessed with the opportunity to compete not only on the local level but on the state and national level as well. Since my journey began, I have been able to meet and compete against some of the best in the industry. Currently, I show Purebred Maines, Chianinas, Maintainers, and Maine-Angus. I am also actively involved in Paradise FFA and 4-H, where I participate in livestock judging, compete in Ag Issues, Consumer Decision Making, and Livestock Skill-A-Thon. Additionally, I am honored to be a member of the Texas Junior Chianina Association and the Texas Junior Maine-Anjou Association, where I am a board member.

Of all of the incredible things I have learned, the most significant of these is to give back on a higher level. One way I do this is by being a part of a non-profit organization called Concerns of Police Survivors. This organization has helped my family and me through some of the most challenging times in our life. Now, we can help new families in several ways. We get to support this wonderful organization by fundraising through the agricultural community. Every day, I reap the blessing and benefit of combining two worlds that mean so much to my family and me. I am so excited to be a part and represent the NRS Show Team.

Through Texas FFA I have been the President of the Garrison FFA Chapter for the past 3 years, retired Pineywoods District President, and the 2020-2021 Area IX President. I have been exhibiting cattle since the age of 5 and throughout my show career, I have shown 6 registered cattle breeds including Angus, Beefmaster, Charolais, Chianina, Shorthorn, and Maine-Anjou. I have had the opportunity to show heifers all across the state of Texas and have been blessed enough to hold a title at every Texas major show. I am also the 2018 Texas Junior Angus Association Champion Showman as well as the 2020 Fort Worth Champion Angus Showman. I plan to represent the NRS show team at many local jackpots, fairs, and major shows.  After high school, I plan to further my education at Texas A&M University with a degree in Agriculture Economics then attend the University of Texas to accumulate a law degree to have a career as an Agriculture Lawyer.

This year in the barn I have 6 Simmental and Sim-Angus heifers that I plan to show. One of them is a project heifer I received from the 2019 Kenneth Ambrose Memorial Heifer Scholarship. I enjoy showing all species and plan to show a market barrow soon. My family raises a commercial and registered Simmental, Sim-Angus, and Angus cattle herd. I plan to go to the University of Tennessee or NC State University to study animal reproduction and peruse a career as an Embryologist. I am excited and look forward to representing NRS through the 2020-2021 show season.
