Director at Large- Cindy London
Cindy London, along with her husband, Todd, and their children, Lindsi and Tanner, became involved in the show pig industry in 2006. Her children started by showing at the local fairs but quickly became involved in the WSPA in the organization’s early years. The London’s have made many lifelong friends and met many breeders throughout the state due to their membership in the WSPA. Cindy loves watching how the youth (and the pigs) mature from the beginning of the show season to the end. She also enjoys welcoming new families into the organization. Cindy is looking forward to working with other board members, parents, and youth in making the upcoming show season one of the best yet!

Vice President - Carly Myhre
Carly is currently a Freshman at UW-Rock County. She has been showing pigs for 6 years and has been in the Wisconsin Show Pig Association for 5 years. Showing pigs has given her amazing opportunities to meet new people and learn new things. By showing pigs it has helped shape her into the individual that she is today. One of Carly's favorite things about the WSPA is that she has had the chance to meet mew friends that have the same interest in pigs that she does. The reason she wanted to be on the youth board was to help the younger members and to teach them and others more about the swine industry.
Secretary - Alexis Odermann
My name is Alexis Odermann. I’m 18 years old and I’m a senior at Slinger High School. I’ve been a member of WSPA for 3 years and have loved every minute of it! I’ve been involved in 4-H and FFA for multiple years and I’ve really enjoyed mentoring the younger youth. My family and I in recent years have grown to love Berkshires and now breed and show them on the local, state, and national level. I’ve enjoyed raising and showing pigs for the last 8 years and it's become a great passion of mine. I hope by being on the board I can spread my passion for swine to others as well as bring new ideas to help further our organization.
