Born and raised as the third generation on her family farm in Western Kentucky, Megan Harper grew up raising and showing livestock since she was 4 years old. She was born and raised in Murray, Kentucky also known as the friendliest town in America. Her mother is the hardest working 4-H agent in Kentucky. Her Dad was an FFA advisor and now teaches Adult Agriculture Education. In her household, it was simple and not an option; you did both 4-H and FFA. After spending most of her youth as a member of 4-H, FFA, and serving as a Kentucky State FFA Officer, she was fortunate enough to be the first to achieve the highest award in Kentucky 4-H, serve on the 4-H State Teen Council for three years, was top five Star Farmer, and was a state champion in many contests including Livestock Judging, Horse Judging, Small Animal Demonstrations, Country Ham, Goat Impromptu, Sheep Impromptu, and Parliamentary Procedure.
Her “success” through youth development programs taught her that awards collect dust and cannot be the source of true joy. Dream big, work hard, have faith, and love always and Colossians 3:23 now drive her daily. Megan Harper will receive her Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Economics from the University of Kentucky. She is the Federation Assistant at Fayette County Farm Bureau, where she has worked part time for three years. She has had internships with TapLogic, LLC. and Dow AgroSciences as well as a study abroad experience to study international agriculture in Argentina. In addition, she is a member of the UK Agricultural Economics Quiz Bowl Team, Block and Bridle, a member of the UK livestock judging team, National Secretary for AAEA (Agricultural and Applied Economics Association), AFA (Agriculture Future of America) National Scholar, past Professional Development chair for the Beta Omicron Chapter of Sigma Alpha Professional Sorority, and is serving her second term as the Secretary for the College of Agriculture, Food, and Environment Student Council.
