I can’t remember Angus cattle not being in my life, from my father and brothers being herdsman to myself, siblings, daughters, cousins, nieces, nephews growing up in the junior program followed by membership in adult associations. Angus cattle has helped define who I am as a person today. My name is Rebecca (Becky) Knott and I currently reside in LaOtto, Indiana. I am a teacher of 23 years and currently teach 3rd grade. My family and I raise a small herd of Angus Cattle.
The American Angus Auxiliary has established a very strong support in education, promotion and social programs that focus on the welfare of the Angus Breed. My strong work ethic, flexibility, organization, passion, creativity, social networking, my ability to listen and most recently mother of the 50th Miss American Angus, Kallie Knott make me a strong candidate for the Region 5 Director of the American Angus Auxiliary.
As a junior, adult and then parent I have admired the American Angus Auxiliary. I attribute the skills I have learned and the person that I have become in part to the American Angus Auxiliary. It has been a goal of mine to serve on the American Angus Auxiliary so I could give back and help provide leadership to continue the strong efforts in support of our juniors and the Angus Breed.
My experience as an educator, livestock leader, junior breed leader, committee chair, mother of a past Miss American Angus and farm co-owner has given me the opportunity to learn about organization, finance, events, fundraising and communication. For these reasons I feel my experience qualifies me to be a member of the Executive Committee, representing Region 5 as a “Best for the Breed” Director of the American Angus Auxiliary.
