Kody Lucherk, a graduate of Poth High School and a May 2012 graduate of Texas Tech University, is a recipient of the Jerry Hawkins Memorial Livestock Judging Award, presented April 14 during the spring recognition banquet at Texas Tech University. The professors in the Department of Animal Science & Food Sciences vote for the individual who shows persistence and determination, and who made an outstanding contribution to the livestock judging team.

This summer, Kody was selected by the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources to intern in the U.S. Congress. While in Washington, D.C., Kody will participate in the policy-making that affects U.S. agriculture.

This is not the first internship Kody was involved with. He worked as an undergraduate research assistant with Dr. Brad Johnson, which led him to complete an internship with JBS Five Rivers Feedlot in Dalhart, to learn more about the cattle industry. While at Tech, he also worked as an intern at the State Fair of Texas and the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.

Lucherk, the son of Timothy and Karen Lucherk, joined the Blinn College collegiate livestock team and earned many honors. In his two years at Blinn, Kody earned numerous top 10 individual awards and helped his teammates win on the national level. He was a member of Phi Theta Kappa and an active member in the Blinn College Ag Club.

Kody decided to complete his animal science-business degree at Texas Tech University in Lubbock.

His honors at Tech included:

•Member of the 2011 Reserve National Champion Meat Animal Evaluation Team.

•Won first-high individual at the Fort Worth, Houston, and Tulsa State Fair judging contests while on the livestock judging team.

•Member of the 2011 National Champion Livestock Judging Team, named ninth-high individual, and named to the All-American Livestock Judging Team at Louisville.

Kody concluded his judging career at Texas Tech by helping coach the 2012 livestock judging team. He will continue his education in pursuit of a master’s in business administration at Texas Tech.
