Who are your greatest mentors? My parents and Wendell Geeslin

What do you want people to be excited about with Junior Nationals? I want people to make new friendships that will last a lifetime and to learn more life skills though the various events.

What is the board most excited about? The board is looking forward to another great year to show cattle and connect with the youth.

What is the biggest life lesson you can take away from showing livestock? The communication skills from being involved with the contests will always be with you. Also the lifelong friendships you make

What is the most rewarding experience while on the Jr. Board? My most rewarding experience is being able to help the youth with their projects and watching them grow in the show industry.

How do you plan to stay involved with your breed after your term on the jr board is over? I plan to still help junior members with their projects and continue my limousin herd.
