NDSUs Saddle and Sirloin Club once again has brought home awards from the National Block and Bridle Convention.
The seven members of the club attending the convention in Murfreesboro, Tenn., in late January placed first in the scrapbook competition and third in the chapter yearbook and chapter activities report categories. This is the third year the club has taken first place in the scrapbook competition.
The National Block and Bridle organization consists of 95 university and college clubs from across the United States. A total of 435 members from 35 chapters attended this years convention.
The Saddle and Sirloin Club members also attended the National Cattlemens Beef Association Convention in Nashville, Tenn., toured agricultural facilities in Tennessee and learned from speakers.
The students were able to network and make valuable contacts within the agriculture community while attending both conventions, says Jim Kirsch, Saddle and Sirloin Club adviser.
Club members competing this year were: Beth Hendrickx, senior, Bowman, N.D.; Jordan Hieber, sophomore, Ubly, Mich.; Marcy McNichols, senior, Grand Rapids, Minn.; Kathryn Smith, junior, McLeod, N.D.; Aaron Steckler, senior, St. Anthony, Minn.; Lacy Wulfekuhle, senior, Wolverton, Minn.; and Nicole Wynsteker, sophomore, Waconia, Minn.
