Samantha Ludlam will be new MSPA Executive Director

Samantha Ludlam was chosen for the ED position of MSPA after Maury Kaercher retires following the 2021 Shepherd’s Weekend event.  Samantha will start part-time in September to shadow Maury and Nancy as they organize the 2021 event to give her an insight into the huge amount of work that goes into organizing this event.

Samantha has been involved with the sheep industry as part of her family’s Windswept Farm in Hopkins Michigan. She is a recent graduate of Michigan State University with a degree in Ag, Food, and Natural Resources Education and will be teaching Agri-science and FFA advisor in the Dundee School System this fall.
Samantha brings a long history of working with youth programs and hopes to grow membership, promote MSPA to everyone who raises sheep in Michigan, and of course, continue providing valuable information via educational activities like the Shepherds Weekend.

We welcome Samantha to MSPA,
