The Angus Foundation, a not-for-profit affiliate of the American Angus Association®, welcomes a new director for its marketing and public relations initiatives. An Illinois native and recent Oklahoma State University graduate, Carrie Horsley began her role with the Angus Foundation on Jan. 1.

"I am confident Carrie will help the Foundation continue to reach its mission of raising funds to support education, youth and research activities for the future of the Angus breed," says Milford Jenkins, Angus Foundation president. "We look forward to working with Carrie and welcome her to the Angus team."

As the Angus Foundation's marketing and public relations director, Horsley will develop and execute a variety of promotional materials and events, including the organization's annual report, newsletter and website. She will also identify and create new outlets in print and electronic media for the Angus Foundation to recognize donors, and plan and market events.

"I hope to contribute to the advancement of the Angus breed through my new role in the Angus Foundation," Horsley says. "And I look forward to the new experiences this position offers me."

In December 2013, Horsley earned an agricultural communications degree from Oklahoma State University (OSU). She also holds a minor in agricultural economics and agribusiness.

While at OSU, Horsley was recognized on the Dean's Honor Roll and a member of the Gamma Sigma Delta Agricultural Honor Society. She received her associate's degree from Black Hawk College in Illinois, prior to attending OSU.

Her experience during her undergraduate studies includes freelance writing for the Illinois Beef Magazine, interning at the KOSU radio station in Stillwater, Okla., and serving as the American Angus Association's activities and events intern during the summer of 2013.

"Carrie is a very talented and qualified agricultural communications professional with an impressive portfolio of achievements and accomplishments," Jenkins says. "And, best of all she is eager to work for the future of the Angus breed."

Horsley is a native of Galva, Ill., where her family continues to run a diversified agricultural operation, which includes 180-head of cattle.
