The Arkansas Junior Hereford has named Summer Imperiali as the 2018-19 Queen, and Brooke Hattabaugh as the Princess.
Imperiali is the daughter of Travis & Ashley Imperiali and is a ninth grade student at Waldron High School. Her hobbies and interests include showing cattle, FFA, working on the farm, 4-H, cheerleading, basketball, and community involvement. Her awards and accomplishments are Outstanding Academic Achievement, 2018 Senior Beef Showmanship, 2017 Junior Beef Showmanship, and 2017-2018 Super Showman at Arklahoma State Fair. She recalls her favorite Hereford memories as road trips/traveling to fairs and growing a strong bond with cattle. Imperiali said the her favorite thing about the Hereford breed is that they are very docile. The advice she would give to other exhibitors is, “Always be confident and show like you’ve never won.”
Hattabaugh, 13, is the daughter of Stephanie Ridenhour and Shay Hattabaugh. Her hobbies and interests include showing cows, playing basketball, and cheerleading. Her favorite thing about the Hereford breed is that they have been in her family for four generations. Additionally, her favorite Hereford memory was when she won the Herdsman Award. The advice she would give to other Hereford exhibitors is to “always have fun!”
Congratulations to both of these young ladies on all their hard work and accomplishments.
