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.

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.
