The World Watusi Association has started a yearly scholarship to be awarded to a graduating high school senior. Details for applications for the 2018 scholarship will be posted at a later date.
We would like to congratulate our very first scholarship recipient, Olivia Woods, daughter of Lewis and Summer Deline of Reed City, Michigan. She attends Pine River High School.
Olivia received the green hand award along with outstanding junior and proficiency award for exotic animals throughout the FFA along with competing in the job interview competition, and making 4th in the state this year and made it to state last year. She has shown four different Watusi cows.
Olivia plans to attend State University of New York College of Agriculture and Technology in Cobleskill, New York, for butchering.
Don’t forget that there will be a watusi sale on Thursday, April 5, 2017 at the Lolli Bros Exotic Sale in Macon, Missouri. There are some fine animals consigned. This is one of the rare opportunities to view and purchase a number of registered watusi in one location.
The World Watusi Association will also host their annual Spring Fling on Wednesday April 5, 2017 at 7:00 pm at the Comfort Inn in Macon, Missouri. All are welcome. Dinner will be served together with all the watusi gossip you can handle. We will also have our ‘Fun Auction’ of donated items including this year homemade pies. Bring your checkbook and the family.
We are pleased to announce the results of our election for the Board of Director’s for the 2016 through 2017 year. We are excited to welcome two new members to our Board, Sheri Gurr of Roosevelt, Utah and Matt Moffatt of Piedmont, Oklahoma. Pat Burnett was reelected for another three year term. We are all excited to start another year and look forward to further supporting our little association and these wonderful cattle.
In addition to the general election we have elected a new slate of officers for the 2016-2017 year. Our new (re-elected) President is Pat Burnett of Wills Point, Texas; our new Vice President is Garett Judd of Edmonton, Kentucky; our new (re-elected) Secretary is Pam Jackson of Water Valley, Kentucky and our new Treasurer is Sheri Gurr of Roosevelt, Utah.
We want to express our deep appreciation and gratitude to our outgoing board member, Richard Jackson who has been an invaluable member of this association and board for many, many years. We would also like to thank Joy Rider for serving as our Treasurer for the past few years. We know our association will continue to depend on both of these valuable members for years to come
