AbstractThree objectives of the National Block and Bridle Club are to promote animal agriculture through the activities of the club, to supplement students’ study of the animal sciences, and to bring about a closer relationship among students who choose to be a part of the organization. I believe the Block and Bridle club at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln has been successful in accomplishing these goals over the past year and I sincerely thank all of the officers and members who have given their time and effort to make this possible. I am excited to say that our active membership has increased over the past school year and I hope to see this trend continue as we strive to make decisions that will benefit each member of the club. I also thank the Animal Science faculty and staff who provide support and guidance both in regard to the club and on an individual basis. I am grateful for the opportunity to interact with faculty who are willing to make a personal investment in students; I believe this is one of the many benefits of being part of the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources and the East Campus community at UNL. I especially thank our advisors, Dr. Gary Sullivan, Dr. Ty Schmidt, and Brad Bennett, for encouraging our new ideas, working with us to plan and execute events, answering our many questions, and being available for anything else we needed. Thank you to Terri Behl for always working with us to distribute clothing, collect payments, print programs, and much more. Over the past three years, Block and Bridle has provided me with the chance to learn from leaders who are passionate about many different sectors of the agricultural industry, to teach younger students about livestock production, and to meet people with a common interest, some of whom have become great friends. It is my hope that throughout this year, members have gained experiences and relationships that are meaningful to them and will continue to do so in coming years. Again, thank you to all members, officers, and advisors for your dedication to Block and Bridle and your contributions that made this year a success. I thank you for allowing me to serve as your 2014 – 2015 President and I look forward to being a part of the officer team again next year. We will strive to continuously improve in all that we do, while upholding the traditions and principles of the Block and Bridle club.
