GNFA announces Georgia National Junior Livestock Ambassadors

The Georgia National Fairgrounds & Agricenter (GNFA) has named its 2019-2020 Georgia National Junior Livestock Ambassador Team. Congratulations to Jordan Rodgers, Chase West, McKenna Walker, Bryson Smith, Emma Long, Lily Norton, Addie Bridges, Mary Catherine Maloy, Parker Fleming, and Emma Newberry for being named to the team.

For the next year, these students will represent the GNFA during livestock, equine and commercial events held at the fairgrounds and across Georgia.

Each of the ambassadors exhibits livestock at the fairgrounds and will continue in their FFA Supervised Agricultural Experience project as they advocate for livestock showing and agriculture. The students were selected based on their written applications, video applications and interviews.

The GNFA Ambassadors will serve in leadership roles in their communities to educate the public about the Georgia Junior Livestock Program, FFA and 4-H organizations, and the benefits of being involved in livestock showing, where the entire family can be involved.

“It is our desire for each student to walk away with a sense of pride in their state, an understanding that what they are doing today directly affects the outcome of tomorrow and a chance to reach those who do not understand their love and passion for the livestock and equine industry,” GNFA Marketing Director Keaton Walker said.
