Greetings Guernsey friends, I know that traveling to and from the National Guernsey Convention wasn’t “rainbows and butterflies,” but I hope that everyone had safe travels home from La Crosse, Wisconsin, and is back into the daily grind! The youth members had a great time and for those of you who were unable to attend, here is a recap of our events from Monday morning when The American Guernsey Youth Association held their annual meeting.
Members discussed shirt colors and ideas for the National Shows, new award ideas, and arranged youth events for each show. To conclude the meeting we held director and officer elections. The north regional director is Austin Knapp, who is also the president of the AGYA. The west regional director is Tyler Chupp. Cara Trotter is the east regional director, also serving as the vice president. Rachel Nance serves as the south regional director, and secretary. Along with the four regional directors there are four at-large directors. These include Laura Jensen, Robin Kime, Kyle Sollenberger, and Jenny Mckenna. We would like to thank Karen Anderson, Dan Fritsche, and Kim Grewe for advising and guiding the youth. Best of luck to everyone during this summer show season! I look forward to seeing you all again soon at Harrisburg!
Cara M. Trotter, Vice President
