The Tennessee Cattlemen’s Association (TCA) and Tennessee Cattlemen’s Youth Association (TCYA) recently selected Weston Rowlett, Weakley County; Sarah Beth Callicott, Hickman County; Allie Harrison, Washington County; Riley Smallen, Monroe County; and Clay Owen, Lincoln County as its 2022 Youth Ambassadors.
Allie Harrison, 2022 Youth Ambassador from Washington County, is honored to have this experience. “I am honored to be chosen as a 2022 ambassador and look forward to educating and promoting the cattle industry,” said Harrison. “I am grateful for the opportunities I will have and the people I will meet.”
The purpose of the TCA Youth Ambassadors is to promote the well-being of the cattle industry, and to further encourage youth involvement and cooperation in the cattle industry. TCA Youth Ambassadors must be a minimum of 16 years old and serve a one-year term. Youth Ambassadors must be members of the Tennessee Cattlemen’s Youth Association.
“As an ambassador, I am excited to experience different parts of the beef industry,” said Sarah Beth Callicott, 2022 Youth Ambassador from Hickman County. “I am excited to meet new people and people that have made our industry successful too.”
Melinda Perkins, Director of Youth Programs and Outreach, is eager to work with the Youth Ambassadors this year. “I am excited to work with the group we have selected as Youth Ambassadors this year. Their time in 4-H and FFA, junior breed associations, and other school activities has undoubtedly equipped them to serve our youth members. I look forward to seeing the new and creative ideas they present.”
