SHE keeps an eagle eye on the comings and goings at work but Sarah Haywood is also looking towards a job on the hop as her long-term career plan.
The 19-year-old Tamworth woman is one of the six entrants in this year’s Tamworth Showgirl and is sponsored by her employer Hopkins Transport.
Sarah works there as an administrative and compliance officer but next year will set off on a new challenge when she begins her studies at Charles Sturt University to be a paramedic.
She’s no stranger to the show circuit and livestock in general either – one of her favourite hobbies is showing cattle.
Signing up to be a Showgirl was just a natural thing for Sarah – she says she’s grown up around regional shows and cattle and horse sales, so she really feels at home.
The Showgirl winner will be announced on the cattle lawn of the Tamworth Showground at the P&A Show on Saturday.
The Tamworth show is on Friday and Saturday.
