Browning recently turned 13 and is a fourth generation Granger.

She joined Mossyrock junior Grange in 2005 and is a member of Camp Moorhead Junior Grange #401 and the Washington State Junior Grange.

In her essay application for Junior Ambassador, Browning wrote, “I have been a Granger since I was born… I feel like I am very good at mentoring the younger kids.”

Browning said she has held almost every office in Junior Grange, entered contests and attended the Washington State Grange Convention.

Additionally she served as Pomona for the 2007 National Grange Junior Officer Team.

She has earned 19 Junior Grange merit badges, 11 Achievement awards through the youth department and in 2013 passed the Super JG test.

Tom Gwin, Director of Camp Moorhead, in his letter of recommendation for Morgan said, “Many of our younger campers look to her as a role model and mentor.”

Darell Myers, Master of Mossyrock Grange #355, supported her bid for Ambassador as well, writing, “she is very passionate about her activities, especially when it involves Grange.”

National Grange Junior Development Director Lillian Booth said Browning was a fantastic candidate who is likely to serve the program well.

“I am looking forward to what she does during her year representing this program,” Booth said.
