Montgomery receives scholarship
The Red Angus Association of America Junior Activities Committee is pleased to name Brock Montgomery, a Junior Red Angus member, as a recipient of a $1,000 college scholarship.
These association scholarships are awarded to JRA members that are active in the association, as well as in their communities and the beef industry, and are planning to attend a two-year or four-year university in the coming year. Recipients completed an extensive application and interview process, and have proven their leadership and professionalism are a step above of the crowd.
Brock Montgomery is the son of Kenny and Lori Montgomery of Coats, Kansas, and is a 2020 graduate of Skyline High School. Brock has been active in Boy Scouts and holds the highest rank of Eagle Scout. He is a twelve-year member of Glendale Reapers 4-H Club. While in high school, Brock was active in football, track, National Honor Society and FFA. He plans to attend Oklahoma State University double majoring in animal science and agricultural education. Red Angus became his breed of choice in 2010 with the purchase of his first show heifer. Brock and his brother, Ty, built their small herd with ideal conformation traits and balanced EPD profiles in mind. He sells bulls and heifers locally and exhibits his animals in national shows while making friends all over the country. He will remain tied to Red Angus cattle as he travels the path of life.
