She competed in the Youth Market Lamb, Youth Market Goat, Youth Dairy Goat, and Youth Breeding Sheep shows and was awarded several places including sixth. In high school she has been an active member of FFA, 4-H Club, Choir, and National Honor Society.
Both girls have held numerous offices in their clubs and received many awards and honors during their high school career and have been active in community service.

Amy Beth plans to attend Palo Alto College and major in bio-medical science. She is the daughter of Jim and Sylvia Moran of Elmendorf.
