Chessie Garrett of Justin, Texas, recently joined the Red Angus Association of America (RAAA) in the registration department after completing an internship with the Association this summer.
Garrett is currently a junior at Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Texas, where she is pursuing a degree in animal science and is an active member of Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow and Block and Bridle. Garrett grew up around a cow-calf operation in Mt. Pleasant, Texas, and aspires to own and operate her own operation.
In the registration department, Garrett will handle member services duties such as transfers, heifer exposures, registrations, administrative duties and other projects as needed. Angelia Brooks said Garrett has proved to be a valuable asset to the membership.
"Having Chessie here during peak times in the department has really helped maintain the flow of work," Brooks, RAAA registry manager said. "Her enthusiasm to learn is an inspiration."
