“Julia’s tenacity coupled with her knowledge of the western lifestyle, the cutting horse, and our community make her an incredible asset to the foundation,” said Joey Milner, NCHA Foundation Board Chair.
In her new position, Buswold will oversee the day-to-day operations and administration of the Foundation including donor cultivation, grant writing, and coordination of fundraising events such as the Western Heritage Celebration. She will also manage the youth scholarship program, provide support to the Foundation’s animal welfare committee, and engage in projects geared toward education and promotion of the sport of cutting. In addition, Buswold will utilize her expertise in museum curation to assist the Foundation in harnessing a collection of more than 70 years of cutting horse memorabilia to become accessible to not only NCHA members, but also the public.
“I am grateful for this opportunity,” said Julia Buswold, NCHA Foundation Director. “I look forward to working alongside all of our trustees to grow the Foundation and expand our outreach.”
Buswold joined the NCHA Foundation in November 2019 as Manager of Programs and Operations. Prior to joining the NCHA Foundation, she spent 11 years at the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame, serving as executive director since 2013.
Buswold attended Texas A&M University and is active in the community. She currently serves as a board member for the Fort Worth Stockyards Business Association and Friends of the Fort Worth Herd. In addition, she is a member of Ladies on the Lamb organization for the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo and has served as a judge for the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo’s Public Speaking scholarship contest for the last 6 years.
