Saddle and Sirloin Club Wins Awards

NDSU’s Saddle and Sirloin Club places in national competition.

North Dakota State University’s Saddle and Sirloin Club once again has brought home awards from the National Block and Bridle Convention.

The seven members of the club attending the convention in Murfreesboro, Tenn., in late January placed first in the scrapbook competition, and third in the chapter yearbook and chapter activities report categories.

This was the third year the club has taken first place in the scrapbook competition.

Club members competing this year were: Beth Hendrickx, senior, Bowman; Jordan Hieber, sophomore, Ubly, Mich.; Marcy McNichols, senior, Grand Rapids, Minn.; Kathryn Smith, junior, McLeod; Aaron Steckler, senior, St. Anthony; Lacy Wulfekuhle, senior, Wolverton, Minn.; and Nicole Wynsteker, sophomore, Waconia, Minn.

The National Block and Bridle organization consists of 95 university and college clubs from across the U.S. A total of 435 members from 35 chapters attended this year’s convention.

The Saddle and Sirloin Club members also attended the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Convention in Nashville, Tenn., toured agricultural facilities in Tennessee and listened to speakers.

“The students were able to network and make valuable contacts within the agriculture community while attending both conventions,” says Saddle and Sirloin Club adviser Jim Kirsch.
