Thank You Notes to the HPOU

Tom Kennedy


This month has been one full of searching for just the right calf to show in the 2019 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Although I have shown Brahmans for the past few years, I have decided that it would be best to try a different American breed after reviewing  the structure of the classes.

My parents and I visited a Brangus breeder that has a January heifer that shows promise. This heifer will be shown at the Brangus state show in June. Her performance at this show will help us make our final decision.

Thank you for your time and have a great day.

To the HPOU Board of Directors,

I’d like to thank you for awarding me the 2018 Houston Police Officers Union scholarship award as I embark on my journey at Stanford University. It will come in handy. This scholarship will help me as I work to succeed in this next chapter of my life. Thank you for supporting me.
