JOCELYN FRANK

Jocelyn Frank

Jocelyn graduated in June from Chiawana High School in Pasco, WA. She has been a member of the Columbia Burbank WAHSET Team for the past 4 years. She is a member of the National Honor Society, Vice-President of her FFA chapter, and was a 3-year varsity athlete in cross country. She has always had a great love for animals starting with her dogs as a very young child. As she got older, she began participating in 4-H, FFA, and WAHSET. Over the years she has shown rabbits, poultry, beef cattle, and horses. In the fall she will be attending Eastern Oregon University in La Grande, Oregon working on her undergraduate degree in biochemistry. This will be her precursor degree to going on to achieve her advanced degree in veterinarian medicine. In this field, she will be continuing her efforts to make sure all animals are treated and cared for so they can continue to improve the lives of their owners. WAHSET has helped her with her horsemanship by participating in most of the western classes and events. It has helped her learn to work as part of a team in cattle sorting, working pairs and as a drill team member, all this involvement has helped her learn better communication skills between her teammates and her coaches. All of which will help her in her long-term goal. Jocelyn would like to thank all her family members, supporters, teammates, and coaches for the past 4 great years.
