Our final scholarship spotlight is Randa Taylor. Randa received the Limi Booster, and the Ron and Carlyn Holland scholarship at the 2017 Junior Nationals. Her involvement within the Limousin breed has led her to attend Texas A&M University majoring in Animal Science, with a business minor. After graduating with her animal science degree, she plans on going to nursing school to become a pediatric nurse and have her own Limousin Operation.
Her involvement in the Limousin Breed throughout the years has helped her become more outgoing and meet a multitude of people around the world. Randa is involved in numerous activities at Texas A&M such as, Saddle & Sirloin, Texas Aggie Cattlewoman, Freshmen Leadership Experience, Houston Livestock Show Intern, and a College of Agriculture and Life Science Recruiter. Attending Aggie athletic games, Midnight Yell, and meeting some of the best people are just some of her favorite college experiences. Her advice to incoming freshmen is to “Learn how to manage your time!”
The water fights at the end of each week in the stalls is one of Randa’s favorite Limousin experiences. Out of the thirteen junior nationals Randa has attended, the 2011 Junior Nationals that was held in Amarillo was her favorite because it was the last one with her Nana. Her advice to juniors is to “Get involved in everything and step out of your comfort zone!” She loves passing those long drives to Junior Nationals by singing loud in the car to many songs. A fun fact about Randa is that she loves every Justin Bieber song and could eat Taco Bell for every meal!
Congratulations on your scholarships, Randa!
