January 21, 2016
The American Gelbvieh Association (AGA) would like to welcome Mary Bea Martin to the staff as Member Services Specialist.
Martin grew up in Georgia, where she participated in junior livestock activities. She and her family actively showed cattle, lambs, and hogs and she considers the pinnacle of her junior livestock experience to be exhibiting the 2003 Reserve Champion Steer at the National Western Stock Show.
Martin graduated from West Texas A&M University in 2006 where she was very active on campus with several student and community service organizations.
Martin brings several years of customer service experience to the AGA staff. After graduation, Martin worked for Scarborough Specialties, a promotional product company in Amarillo, Texas. She then returned to her home state to work as an outside sales representative for Godfrey's Feed in Madison, Georgia. In this position
Martin was very involved in the state's youth livestock program. After five years, she moved back to Texas and worked in the synthetic turf industry.
In addition, Martin was also a founding member of the Georgia Junior Livestock Foundation which raises money for junior livestock programs in the state. She is still an active board member for this organization. She has also served on the Georgia Cattlemen's convention committee.
