Lily Gisclair is originally from Longville, Louisiana, where she lived on a cattle farm. She is currently a senior at Oklahoma State University where she is pursuing a dual degree in Agricultural Education and Agricultural Communications. With this, she hopes to obtain a job as an agriculture teacher or a position in agriculture communications. Either way she plans to continue being involved in the agriculture industry that she loves. Lily grew up showing and raising Registered Black Angus Cattle, steers, and market lambs. Growing up in the cattle industry, specifically the National Junior Angus Association, she understands the valuable important work associations put forth to not only have a successful show season but develop leadership skills for junior members. She is thrilled at the opportunity to work for the American Shorthorn Association this summer as the Registrations Intern.

Regan graduated from Purdue University with her Bachelor’s in Animal Science Agribusiness and is now a graduate student at Kansas State University obtaining her Master’s in Agricultural Education and Communications.

During her undergrad, Regan served on the Indiana Junior Beef Cattle Association for five terms where she was able to interact with junior members across the state by helping host 27 jackpot shows and attend events such as the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Convention. She looks forward to utilizing her past experiences of being the Indiana State Fair Livestock Intern and the Showtimes Blackout 7 Intern to her advantage to effectively serve as the Youth Activities Intern and work closely with the American Shorthorn Association to host a great Shorthorn Junior Nationals and Youth Conference!
