Elanie’s MCCA Sweetheart Farewell Letter!

Hi everyone! I can’t believe my reign has ended, and this is my last blog post as your MCCA Sweetheart. I have loved nothing more than to serve our grand county and to represent our prosperous beef industry. As many of you know, I competed for the FCA Sweetheart position in June, and I was blessed with that opportunity. I can’t thank MCCA, and everyone who ran practice interviews with me, answered late-night texts, read over my PowerPoints, and everything in between. Thus far, I have attended many events promoting the beef industry along with the opportunity to network with cattlemen throughout the state. I am proud to represent the Florida cattle industry, but I am even more humbled to have come from the best county in the state of Florida. 


To Shelbie, 
I have watched you grow into an outstanding professional, and I am so excited to watch you grow even more on this journey! I know that you will represent this organization with grace, eloquence and, and poise. You are going to rock this position and make Manatee County proud at the convention in June! 

Lastly, I ask that you all take the time to invest in our Sweethearts, follow their journey through social media and the MCCA blog. Again, thank you all for everything! Don’t hesitate to contact me if I can ever be of service to you. 

Eat Beef, 
Elanie Mason Manatee County Cattlemen’s Sweetheart 2020-2021
