By: Norman Martin
A graduate of Texas Tech University's Department of Animal and Food Sciences has been named director of communications and member outreach for the Texas Pork Producers Association in Kyle, Texas. Brooke Blum, who received a bachelor's degree in animal science in 2018, joined the group today (Mar. 11).
"Brooke brings positive enthusiasm, tremendous interpersonal skills and proven initiative," said TPPA Executive Vice President Brandon Gunn. "The valuable knowledge and experience she gained through her previous internships with TPPA and the Texas major stock shows will allow her to jump right in."
Gunn said the Howe native will support strategic initiatives and work closely with membership and allied industry to implement a range of activities to expand the association's community and increase its visibility. In addition, she'll be responsible for the coordination of communications and marketing, as well as events and various outreach and volunteer activities.
At Texas Tech, Blum was a member of the 2016 co-national champion wool judging team, and was selected to the All-American team. She was a member of a successful 2018 Livestock Judging Team, as well as serving as president of the Block and Bridle Club and working as a Department of Animal and Food Sciences student assistant. Blum was a member of the Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Society.
"TPPA is a great organization, and I look forward to being a part of its future," Blum said.
