Jackson McCurry earns Junior Silver Award

Jackson McCurry, Colwich, Kansas, has earned the National Junior Angus Association’s (NJAA) Silver award, according to Caitlyn Brandt, events and junior activities director of the American Angus Association® in Saint Joseph, Mo.

McCurry is the 17-year-old son of Jesse and Rhonda McCurry and attends Andale High School. He is a member of the NJAA and the Kansas Junior Angus Association, where he has served as a director.

He has participated in local, state and national shows and showmanship contests. At the National Junior Angus Show (NJAS), McCurry participated in photography contest and the All-American Certified Angus Beef® Cook-Off. He also participated in the Raising the Bar conferences in 2022 and 2023.

The Silver award is the second level of the NJAA Recognition Program that began in 1972. Junior Angus breeders must apply for the award, then meet point requirements in many areas of participation before receiving the honor. Applicants are evaluated in areas of junior Angus association activities and leadership, participation in showmanship, contests and shows, using performance testing to improve their herd and their progress in producing and merchandising Angus cattle.

      The NJAA promotes the involvement of young people in raising Angus cattle, while also providing leadership and self-development opportunities for the nearly 4,500 active members nationwide.
