Get to Know Your 2020 Interns!

Hey y’all! We are Abigail, Cassidy and Kendall and we are super excited to strap on our spurs and mount up to be your 2020 interns. We like to think of ourselves sort of like Texas Rangers. We’re here to support and protect the commonwealth that is the American Shorthorn Association. We’ve been busy in the office sorting cattle (for registration), putting up wanted posters (making the exhibitor folder), and preparing contests for our upcoming rangers (junior members). Each of our current rangers has provided an update for you below!

Ranger Abigail:

Howdy everyone! This first week in the office has been busy, but a lot of fun. My work has mainly consisted of putting together the exhibitor folder for all of our junior members. I have also been getting to know my fellow rangers. They have also been hard at work preparing contests and entries for the biggest shindig of the year, Shorthorns and Spurs! We hope you have your cowboy hats handy, because it’s going to be a wild ride! We can’t wait to see you in the great state of Texas!

Ranger Cassidy:

Hey everyone! I hope y’all are excited to head on down to Abilene soon! I have been busy gathering all the facts and the goods for the greatest week of the year! The other rangers and I have been working to get to know each other and are looking forward to meeting all the other rangers in the breed soon. Kansas City has been fun to explore, even with everything being shut down. Get those entries in and prepare to be in Abilene, the prettiest town you’ve ever seen!

Ranger Kendall:

Hey y’all how is everyone doing?! I have been busy at work my first week in the office. I have been working hard rounding up all the entries to make sure we have the correct information and payments done. I’ll still be hard at work as entries don’t close till May 25th, so I still have a lot of rounding up and sorting to do here in the office. I’m excited to spend the summer in Kansas City and to learn more about the Shorthorn Breed.  Hope you guys are ready to strap on your spurs and join us in Abilene, Texas. If you have any questions regarding entries make sure to contact me or our head ranger, Shelby Rogers Diehm.
