Mark Thompson
It is not uncommon to see Board member Mark Thompson wearing his cowboy hat. This is only fitting considering the number of different hats (not literally) he carries as an active leader and member of the agriculture community.
Despite Thompson's hard work, he knows when to have fun. He announces horse shows and rodeos all over the western United States. He credits three events that led him to find his spot behind the microphone.
Thompson, of Clovis, was first introduced to announcing when Bob Robinson, an announcer and great friend of Mark's, needed Thompson to fill in announcing while Robinson competed in one of the cattle events.

Mark stepped up and announced his first event.
Thompson got his first major opportunity to announce in 1992 when Jon Semper asked him to announce for three days at a Snaffle Bit Futurity event at Selland Arena when it moved to Fresno.
After a long talk with Tallman, Mark decided to attend Tallman's rodeo announcer school in Baker City, Oregon.
Mark and the Backcountry Horseman Pack Team have won the world championship 3 times and the reserved world championship several times.
