At the 2010 National Junior Shorthorn Show in Louisville, Ky., the American Junior Shorthorn Association named the recipient of the Junior Appreciation Award. This year's recipient was Kent Jaecke of Edmond, Okla. Every year at the National Shorthorn Show, the AJSA Board of Directors recognizes an individual for their dedication to the junior association by the Junior Appreciation Award.
Jaecke was selected as this year's recipient because of his efforts to go out of his way to help with fundraising activities for the AJSA, such as the Funding the Future Sale, as well as serve as the official announcer for Shorthorn Junior National Shows and events for several years. He is always encouraging the juniors to step outside of their comfort zone and dream big. His generosity and support are noticed by many throughout the industry. There is no question this individual has one of the most recognizable laughs and his unique style and antics during a sale always keep you on the edge of your seat. The AJSA was proud to recognize everyone's favorite K-State Wildcat.
