Kansas

Lauren Herman, Kingman, Kan., has earned the National Junior Angus Association's Bronze and Silver Awards, according to Robin Ruff, junior activities director of the American Angus Association in Saint Joseph, Mo.

The 19-year-old daughter of Don and Janice Herman is a senior at Insight School of Kansas. Lauren is a member of the NJAA and the Kansas Junior Angus Association, where she serves as District 6 director.

She has participated in local, state, and national shows and showmanship competitions. At the National Junior Angus Show, Lauren participated in the career development contest.

The Bronze and Silver awards are the first two levels of the NJAA Recognition Program that began in 1972. Junior Angus breeders must apply for the awards, then meet point requirements in many areas of participation before receiving the honors. Applicants are evaluated in areas of junior Angus association activities and leadership, participation in showmanship, contests and shows, using performance testing to improve their herd and their progress in producing and merchandising Angus cattle.

The NJAA promotes the involvement of young people in raising Angus cattle, while also providing leadership and self-development opportunities for the nearly 6,000 active members nationwide.
