Starr Selected as AHA Junior Activities Intern
Nicole Starr, Manawa, Wis., is serving as the American Hereford Association (AHA) junior activities intern this summer. Starr grew up in the Hereford breed and is a junior in animal science at Michigan State University (MSU).
In 2008 Starr completed a three-year term on the National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) board of directors, serving as reporter and secretary. During her tenure on the board, she was an ambassador for the Hereford breed and was very active in planning the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) and the Program for Reaching Individuals Determined to Excel (PRIDE) Convention. As a board member, she initiated the mentor program that is a popular networking opportunity for JNHE exhibitors.
"We are excited to have Nicole on board as a summer intern; her passion for the Hereford breed and knowledge of the junior program will be a huge asset to our association this summer," says Amy Cowan, AHA director of youth activities.
Starr is very active in college; she is a student employee at the MSU Purebred Beef Center representing the university at the National Western Stock Show and North American International Livestock Exposition. She is also the beef expo junior show chairperson for the MSU Block & Bridle club. In this role she is responsible for contacting judges, selling sponsorships and creating new awards. In addition to these activities, she served as an intern for the Michigan Beef Expo and was a contestant for the National Beef Ambassador Program.
