Hello, my name is Ricki Fleming; I would like to thank the Lybrook Miller Family and the Alberta Angus Association for the Lybrook Miller Memorial Scholarship. I am 19 years old. I am a founding member and a current director of the Alberta Junior Angus Association. I am also a director of the Canadian Junior Angus Association. I am excited to be a part of these associations and helping with the development of “Junior Angus” enthusiasts. I am pleased to be apart of the formation of the “GOAL (Guiding Outstanding Angus Leaders) Conference”. I am the daughter of Duncan and Cecilie Fleming, sister of Cooper Fleming. Our family farm is located 3/4 miles west of Granum with the backdrop of the beautiful foothills of Southwestern Alberta. We have a Black Angus cow herd and operate Fleming Stock Farms, which I take an active roll in all aspects of the farming and cattle operation. I have 25 head of Black Angus cows of my own which has grown from my involvement in junior programs and will be the base of my future herd. I really enjoy showing cattle at different shows, promoting and presenting the cattle, meeting new people and learning more about the cattle industry. This scholarship has gone towards my post secondary education at Lethbridge Community College, where I am finishing my Agriculture Technology – Animal Science Diploma. Upon completion of this diploma program in April 2007, I will be seeking employment in the agriculture sectors of reproduction, nutrition or advertising. My 5 year plan involves traveling to Europe, working, expanding my Angus herd and continuing my post secondary education to become a well rounded livestock producer as well as an active participant in the “Angus” fraternity. Again, I want you to know how much I appreciate being selected as the 2006 Lybrook Miller scholarship recipient.
