Rennison awarded Simmental Silver Merit Award


The American Simmental Association has awarded Curt Rennison, Braymer, Mo., a Silver Merit Award worth $750 to use for post-secondary educational purposes. Established in 1981, by the ASA Board of Trustees, the Merit Award is designed to provide recognition to junior members who have made "significant contributions to their community, home, family, school and the Simmental or Simbrah breeds of cattle." Judging is based on a combination of factors including leadership, scholarship, extra-curricular participation and direct involvement with the beef industry.

Rennison is a current member of the American Junior Simmental Association's Board of Trustees, as well as a student at Northwest Missouri State University, where he plans to major in Pre-Veterinary Medicine. He is a member of the AGR Beta Rho Chapter, chairing the Green and Gold Classic steer and heifer show. During high school, he was a member of the National Honor Society, served as an officer in his FFA chapter, and competed in football, track, basketball, and baseball. Rennison has been attending AJSA Regional Classics and National Classics since 1991 and began competing in them in 1997. This year, Rennison became certified to artificially inseminate cows and next year he plans to become a certified embryologist.

Rennison, along with 14 other outstanding junior members were selected as 2009 recipients of Gold and Silver Merit Awards. Five individuals received Gold Merit Awards worth $1,500 each, and ten students earned Silver Merit Awards, worth $750 each. Total value of the combined scholarships is $15,000, funded through donations to the ASA Foundation. All awards must be used for post-secondary education purposes.

Receiving Gold Awards are: Amanda Eberspacher, Marshall, Minn., Seth Kaehler, St. Charles, Minn., Katie Linhart, Louisville, Ky,, Abram Mertz, Manhattan, Kan., Lindsay Swick, Franklin, Texas.
