WHOA Announces Keynote Speakers for Convention



The Walking Horse Owners’ Association has announced that Mike Keith, voice of the Tennessee Titans, and Congressman Bart Gordon will be the keynote speakers for the luncheons held during the WHOA Convention. The convention is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, February 8th and 9th in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

Congressman Bart Gordon, who represents the sixth district in Tennessee, has been an avid supporter of the Walking Horse industry. His district is right in the heart of middle Tennessee and he knows first hand the importance of our industry and has been an active supporter in Washington D.C. Rep. Gordon will speak on Saturday, February 9 and will give his perspective on current issues facing the Walking Horse industry. The luncheon benefits the Walking Horse Owners’ Youth Association.

Friday’s luncheon will feature Mike Keith, Director of Broadcasting for the Tennessee Titans. At 34 he is the second-youngest play-by-play announcer in the the NFL and was honored as last year’s Tennessee Sportscaster of the Year by the National Sportswriters and Sportscasters Association. His entertaining stories also give insight to keys on winning community support - something that is beneficial to all organizations. Friday’s luncheon benefits the WHOA Pleasure Association.

Both luncheons are held at the Holiday Inn in Murfreesboro in conjunction with the WHOA National Convention. The cost of each luncheon is $15 and reservations should be made by calling (615) 890-9120 or you can download a reservation form at www.walkinghorseowners.com
