Attending her first cattle show at six weeks old and growing up on a registered Brangus cattle farm has taught Victoria about responsibility and service.
"While all of my ribbons weren't blue, much more of a rainbow of colors actually, the skills I learned were invaluable," she said.
Originally from Emerson, Ark., and an agricultural business and pre-law major at the University of Arkansas, Maloch is a member of Chi Omega Sorority, active on the student alumni board, in Collegiate FFA, with Collegiate Farm Bureau and is a Volunteer Action Center Literacy mentor.
As a student at Emerson High School in Columbia County Ark., she served as Arkansas FFA Association president, chapter president and secretary. Within FFA, she was the Star Chapter Farmer, state prepared public speaking winner and chairman of the state parliamentary procedure team among other great accomplishments.
Maloch also lettered for four years in track and field, was active in 4-H and student council and served as the vice president of the Youth Advisory Council and president of her class. She has received many awards, such as the Principals Award and the South Arkansas Women's Network Horizon Award.
Upon graduation from the University of Arkansas, Maloch plans to combine her love of talking and politics with her passion for agriculture by focusing on agricultural policy or agricultural lobbying as well as legislation regarding hunger and food insecurity. She would also like to serve as an elected official.
During her year of service Maloch hopes to encourage a more active and diverse membership and inspire passion for the organization in members.
