Reese Anderson is your typical busy student. Next year, she will begin her senior year at Chrisman High School. She’s involved in Volleyball, Cheer, FFA, National Honor Society and Student Council.
Her family owns and operates Double Diamond Genetics, who has developed a reputable Angus herd and specializes in embryo transfers.
It was growing up on a farm, where Reese got involved in the Illinois Junior Angus Association.
“My family has been raising cattle ever since I was little, so I’ve grown up watching my brothers getting involved in the industry. This lead me to become involved as well,” Anderson told us.
In her first years in the IJAA, Reese served as a Director for two years. After that, she was elected treasurer.
“This year, I was fortunate enough to be elected by my fellow members to serve as Reporter.”
As reporter, Reese will be responsible for creating a newsletter for all members to be able to view in order to keep up with the current Angus topics. “I’m the only reporter for the whole State of Illinois among the many other members of the IJAA,” Reese said. “I like being the reporter because it allows me to be creative with the designs I choose to use and provide for the other members.”
Though she enjoys being the reporter, Reese would like to have a high position that requires her to be more involved, however she is grateful for being involved in the organization.
“I like the opportunities the IJAA brings. There are so many lifelong friendships I have made and it has helped me become who I am today.”
