NICOLE BRICKER for AjPHA EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE ZONE 5 REPRESENTATIVE Campaign Slogan: See What Spots Can Do for You Age: 17 Grade: 11th School: The Pembroke Hill School How long have you been involved with Paints? Four years Other Horse-Related Interests: I have been involved in the 4-H horse project for eight years. Non-Horse Related Interests: My non-horse related 4-H interests include the Cat Project, Leadership Project, and Veterinary Science Project. I am also a member of The Pembroke Hill Junior Varsity Public Forum Debate Team: Offices held: In my 4-H Club I have held the offices of Reporter, Vice President, and four times as President. I have served as Secretary, twice as PresidentElect, and President of the Jackson County 4-H Council; as well as President of the Jackson County Equine Council. I served as both Princess and Queen of Jackson County. Two years ago I served as the County Youth Liaison for Jackson County. I am currently a West Central Regional Representative on the Missouri 4-H State Council. In the Missouri Junior Paint Horse Club I have served as Vice President for two consecutive years. Community Activities: I am currently the Volunteer Assistant Coach of the Jackson County Horse Bowl and Hippology Team. In 4-H I have donated over twenty hours of service to my community doing assorted projects such as caroling at the local nursing home and doing yard work for the elderly. Over the summer I donated forty hours of service to my local therapeutic riding center, Sugar Creek Equinapy. I am currently working on another service project to help Sugar Creek rebuild after a devastating barn fire. What would you like to see accomplished while you are an officer? How would you accomplish these things? I would like to see an increased participation in both the walk trot and the 13& under categories. I would also like to see more 4-H youth move up into showing in the APHA. I would accomplish these goals by continuing to assist the Painting Relations committee, as well as by promoting the APHA at our local and state 4-H events. We have many younger children in the 4H that have the ability to move up into showing APHA and they just need the encouragement to join.
