Young cattle producers learn leadership

The National Junior Limousin Show is being held in Amarillo this week bringing youth and their families from 21 states to the Texas Panhandle.

I joined state Rep. David Swinford and Amarillo Mayor Debra McCartt on Tuesday night to welcome the dynamic bunch to Texas.

Through showing, sportsmanship and quiz competition, these young Americans are learning responsibility and entrepreneurship.

I really enjoyed the opportunity to meet and greet the group of Texans who were all decked out in their camouflage T-shirts.

I appreciate all the Texans who worked tirelessly to host a terrific national show. No doubt, their efforts provided a great opportunity for these young Americans and was a big boost to the Amarillo economy.
