Nov. Sweetheart Message
2017-2018 FCA Sweetheart
Happy November y’all! This has always been my favorite month for two reasons: my birthday and Thanksgiving! I look forward to this time of the year because there are not only so many things to celebrate, but also to give thanks for. Thinking about my life, I have more than enough things to be thankful for. I go to the greatest university in the state, I have loving family and friends, and most importantly I was born into the tradition of Florida cattle ranching.
Did you know that just over 2% of the population in the United States is involved in agriculture? We hold the responsibility of giving consumers a safe, wholesome, and nutritious protein and feeding a rapidly growing population. To me, that is something to be thankful for!
We have the opportunity to make a difference in the world for ourselves and future generations by preserving our special heritage. This month I challenge you to think about what you are thankful for and share it with someone! My roommates and I have a “friendsgiving” where we all sit down and share the things we are most thankful for in our lives. This year I was hoping to include being thankful for a good Gators’ offense but maybe next year!
My first few months of being FCA sweetheart have been better than I could have imagined! The state ranch rodeo finals and heritage festival were so exciting to be a part of. I look forward to the following months of serving the association and becoming as involved as possible. I cannot wait for my family’s bull sale this month, it is always a great event! Please continue reaching out to me for events you could use an extra hand at! I want to do as much as possible. The easiest way to get ahold of me is by phone at (863) 245-9711 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
