Miss Rodeo South Dakota 2011 January newsletter

Hello! I’m so excited to be writing to you as Miss Rodeo South Dakota 2011! Becoming Miss Rodeo South Dakota has always been a dream of mine and I can’t believe that it has finally come true.

I could not have achieved my dream without some very special people in my life. My family has been my backbone and without their support and love, this dream would not be possible. I’ve been so blessed to have been raised in an amazing community and state. Supportive friends have helped me to become a true cowgirl; they have taught me the importance of the western way of life.

As Miss Rodeo South Dakota, I am thrilled to represent our state sport. To me, rodeo embodies the importance of family, hard work, patriotism and faith. I am proud to represent those values. In this sport, competitors are true friends, hard work pays off and animals are true athletes. This year I would like to inspire people to become rodeo fans so they can love the sport as much as I do. I will also represent rodeo with my platform: If you can dream it, you can achieve it.

In the last week of November, I had the privilege to support McKenzie Haley at the Miss Rodeo America Pageant in Las Vegas, NV. Along with her family and friends, I rejoiced as she was crowned Miss Rodeo America. What a great experience and how great for McKenzie and South Dakota. I was fortunate to attend and learned so much that will help me prepare for the 2011 pageant.

Jan. 8, 2011 is a day that I will always remember and hold dear. I officially became Miss Rodeo South Dakota 2011 at my coronation in Belle Fourche, SD, the home of the Black Hills Round Up and the Miss Rodeo South Dakota Pageant. I was honored by the outstanding support of the Belle Fourche community and my life-long friends. We enjoyed a dinner prepared by Rod Hoffman’s Open Range Country Cookin’. There was a successful live and silent auction, a special presentation by the Black Hills Round Up Chutes for Charity, a coronation ceremony, an announcement of the South Dakota Pro Rodeo Team, a Mr. Rodeo Contest and a dance. Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate rodeo and support me!

My first opportunity to represent South Dakota was at the National Western Stock Show in Denver, CO, over the weekend of Jan. 13-16. I had a great time getting to know the other state title holders as we shared our love for rodeo. What a great group of girls; I look forward to traveling the country with them over the next year. I was honored to meet rodeo legends Roy Cooper and Fred Whitfield.
