Why do you want to be on the AMSA Student Membership Board of Directors and what qualifications make you the best candidate for the position?

“The service we render to others is really the rent we pay for our room on this earth. The purpose of this world is not ‘to have and to hold’ but ‘to give and to serve’”- Sir Wilfred T. Grenfell. I truly believe that one of my purposes for being a student of Oklahoma State University and a member of the American Meat Science Association is to serve others and I would love the opportunity to bring my experience in leadership both on and off the campus of OSU to the AMSA Student Membership Board of Directors. I am hard-working, responsible, passionate and dedicated to serving this organization. I believe I am qualified for this position through my previous experiences of serving as an officer in clubs on campus at OSU including our Meat Science Association and having served on the National Junior Angus Association Board of Directors. On the NJAA junior board I helped plan and put on leadership conferences, facilitated workshops, worked shows, voted on member-related topics, and represented not only the Angus breed but also OSU. I am confident I can do the same for AMSA.

What does your AMSA membership mean to you?

Being a member of a professional organization is one of the best ways to stay connected in an industry you are passionate about and that is what AMSA allows me to do. I have been a member of AMSA since judging meats my freshman year in 2015. AMSA is an extremely important professional organization because it truly provides so much to its members and that is why I’ve always highly valued my membership. AMSA not only funds the majority of the meat judging competitionsacross the U.S. but also allows its members to know the latest of what is happening in the meat industry in education and research. After judging meats and knowing the value it has added to my life in experiences, opportunities and relationships, I am so thankful to AMSA for making it a priority.
