201 7 Miss Brown County Fair Association

Tara Glasscock

Tara Glasscock Tara is a junior at Early High School where she participates in FFA and is on the land judging team. She is also a creed speaker. Tara is a National Honor Society member, student council representative and a captain on the Early Belles Dance Team.
As an 8-year member of the Brown County 4-H, Tara has focused on showing market and breeding lambs county and statewide, where she placed many of her sheep. She won Supreme Grand Champion Breeding Ewe at the San Antonio Livestock Show.

Tara has taken an active role in the 4-H Sheep Club by holding several offices including secretary and treasurer. This year she has the opportunity to show goats, pigs, rabbits and lambs, and will participate in home economic projects at the Brown County Youth Fair.
Through 4-H and FFA, Tara has taken an active role in helping at the rodeo and youth fair in concessions. She has helped run the 4-H Jackpot Sheep Show for several years, participating as a ring man and handing out awards.

Tara has enjoyed running for the Brown County youth fair queen. Just like Winnie the Pooh, she has learned three things while running: she is braver than she believes, stronger than she seems, and smarter than she thinks.

Tara is glad for the opportunity to promote the Brown County Youth Fair so Brown County’s youth will be tomorrow’s leaders and the future of agriculture. Tara would like to thank her family, teachers, friends and the Brown County community for their support and help in making her become the best version of herself.
