Murfreesboro, TN—The Tennessee Cattlemen’s Association (TCA) recently selected Sorrell Martin of Petersburg, Tennessee, as one its 2019 Youth Ambassadors.

Martin is the 17-year-old daughter of Jeanie Garrell of Marshall County. Martin has deep roots in the cattle industry and raising Hereford cattle alongside her mother, and three sisters. In addition to raising and showing Hereford cattle, she is highly involved in 4-H and cross country at Cornersville High School, and a devoted advocate for the agriculture industry.
