2017 thsra state finals grand entry We will have morning & evening grand entries on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and also for the short go matinee on Saturday. Each region has been assigned 2 performances but I made them on the same day so it would be easier to remember. I also divided up the Monday and Tuesday morning grand entries because the student officers tend to have other commitments those mornings and need help. Please have at least 5 members from your region to help carry flags. More than 5 would be nice. I assigned 4 regions for Friday since contestants have started going home by then. If there are not enough contestants for all of the flags, then they will be asked to carry a second flag. If you have a member that likes to carry sponsor flags, they are welcome to help at any performance. Some understand it is a good way to get their horse in the arena before competition. Contestants will be asked to hold the flag pole upright and make one lap around the edge of the arena at a slow lope so that the sponsor flag is displayed behind them while the announcer reads the script for their flag. REGION ASSIGNMENTS FOR MONDAY & TUESDAY MORNING: Monday – Regions 1 through 5 Tuesday – Regions 6 through 10 REGION ASSIGNMENTS FOR MORNING & EVENING PERFORMANCES: Wednesday – Regions 1, 7 & 10 – Team Cinch members will be introduced that evening Thursday – Regions 2, 3 & 6 Friday – Regions 4, 5, 8 & 9 Saturday – All Regions MORNING PERFORMANCES: Line up at 8:45am in the back of the alley. Start at 9am. EVENING PERFORMANCES: Line up at 6:30 pm in the back of the alley. Start at 6:45pm. SATURDAY’S MATINEE GRAND ENTRY STARTS AT 2:45PM. All regions are asked to send contestants to help with this one. Line up at 2:30pm in the back of the alley – or as quickly as you can following the 2nd Go and Top 15 awards.

Sponsor Spotlight:

B

loomer Trailers and the Bloomer Family have dedicated the past 12 years in helping shape the future of rodeo by sponsoring a team each year to go through an in depth program that will compete at the IFYR in Shawnee, Oklahoma also referred to as the “Cheyenne of High School Rodeo”. Randy Bloomer, Owner and CEO of Bloomer Trailer Mfg., Inc. feels the future of rodeo can be better with not only the support system of the parents but also the communities and business leaders in the western industry. Over the past twelve years Bloomer Trailers High School Rodeo Team has produced several National High School Rodeo Champions, CNFR Champions, NFR Qualifiers, several PRCA Rookies of the Year and a PRCA World Champion. Each of the professional athletes have reflected that their training with the Bloomer program has helped their career tremendously. This year Bloomer Trailers has chosen 33 athletes from 11 states after a careful selection process. They host a team meeting for members and their families for a weekend in March in Salado, Texas. Bloomer Trailers along with some Bloomer

Pro Team Cowboys and Cowgirls teach each athlete that goes through the program about many aspects in the professional world of rodeo as well as handling real life situations. The team meeting prepares the athletes in several areas including; interviewing for television/radio, professional photo shoots, obtaining sponsors, live filming and the professional side of rodeo. Randy Bloomer host the meeting along with photographers and production teams, guest speakers and trainers including Bloomer Pro Team athlete Sage Kimzey and Kaci Riggs with Charlie 1 Horse and Resistol Hats. Broadcasters and TV personalities Alexis Bloomer and Chris Rankin. The keynote speaker this year was Green Beret John Wayne Walding.

By BLISS BOLTON – Performance Reporter

n Region II, we wrapped up our year with our Region Finals in Sweetwater, Texas. Friday and Saturday, competitors tried to make their best runs in a last ditch effort to win a regional title and qualify for the state finals. After the final rodeo on Saturday, we got to watch all the contestants go from dirt to diamonds to dance the night away at the rodeo prom! But before that, Saturday morning there was a special introduction and send off for our seniors. In Region II this year, 45 of our 160 members were seniors. Saturday morning before the final rodeo started, each senior rode into the arena as their biography was read and received a personalized felt back number. Several of the seniors applied for our region scholarships which were awarded during this

time as well. The senior class will be well represented at the state finals this year with 25 of our 45 seniors having qualified. This great group of young adults will be heading out into the world on to all different things, school, college rodeo, jobs, and more; and as a senior myself, I can say, we will all represent Region II in the best way we can using the amazing knowledge and experiences we have gained here. After all the senior festivities and once the final rodeo had been completed, it was time to change out of our hats and boots into elegant dresses and spiffy coats for our rodeo prom! The prom was complete with a dj, candy bar, and lots of food. Jennings Rodeo Photography shot some great photos of the couples in our photo area and caught some candid shots on the dance floor. There was even a limo that picked up a large group to cruise around town a little before heading into the dance. It was a great night full of laughter, memories, and lots of dancing! Sunday morning we still had one order of business to take care of; it was time for the awards banquet. During the banquet, our region event champions were named, and the allaround champions and the state qualifiers were recognized. Region II has a very competitive group of young athletes headed to the state finals and they are sure to dominate. So with our crazy busy region finals, Region II’s year came to an end. Now on to the state finals! For the final time; good luck Region II, with all that you do.

THE BADDEST, THE BEST:

By HALEY NOVAK– Performance Reporter

A

s school is coming to an end, and state finals is just around the corner; life tends to get very busy and stressful. It's very easy to get caught up in all the madness, but sometimes we need to take a step back and appreciate all the little accomplishments along the way. Even though this can be a stressful time, it is also the most exciting time! The month before State finals is naturally the time where we put all our focus into being as prepared as possible for the coveted week in Abeline. Being one of the lucky 10 in your region is a great start to your road to Nationals. Sense we are in Texas and have the most contestants out of any state in the NHSRA, naturally

we have the toughest level of competition there is! Unfortunately, that tends to add some pressure to contestants throughout the week in Abeline. Some jitters are normal and are needed… but letting them takeover is not a good plan. Even though we may get nervous there are still some ways to put nervousness at rest: close your eyes while taking deep breaths, this helps you get under control. Also, just pray about it and give your run to God! Another thing you can do to get rid of nervousness is to hangout and have fun with your friends from other regions that you never get to see; there's a lot to do in Abeline so have fun and enjoy yourself while you can! On the other side of that, make sure you take care of business before play because after all that is why we are all there! Overall, be proud of yourself and your accomplishment of making it to the toughest State Finals there is!


WORK HARD IN SILENCE. LET SUCCESS MAKE THE NOISE. Winning is important, but the preparation to win is crucial. Let the experienced team at Heel-O-Matic help customize your plan for roping success. Call or message us today. 888-HEELING | 888-433-5464 | heelomatic.com

By PAIGE DAWSON

– Performance Reporter

ow! The event we’ve all been waiting for is upon us – State Finals! Contestants from all across our great state of Texas will be in Abilene competing for the opportunity to represent THSRA at Nationals in Gillette, Wyoming. No matter if this is your first trip to State Finals or your last, it’s an experience you’ll never forget. State is so much fun - you get to hang out with friends you may only see once a year, you get to meet and make new friends, and you get to compete in the sport we all love! For seniors it will be bittersweet because they will be saying goodbye to High School Rodeo, but as this chapter of their lives ends, new adventures await them. We wish all of our Region 6 seniors the best of luck in whatever lies ahead of them. There is a very important individual to the operations of Region 6 that needs to be recognized and that is our Region 6 Secretary, Nena Boettcher. She plays a vital role in making everything run smoothly in our region. She greets you a smile,

is happy to answer any questions you may have, a problem solver deluxe and always goes above and beyond to help make Region 6 the best. Thank you Nena for all you do – you are awesome! Memorial Day Weekend will be over by the time this issue gets to everyone but all of us at Region 6 would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the men and women in our Military - and their families - for the many sacrifices they have made for our freedom. It’s because of them that we are able to live in such a great country and enjoy the freedoms that we do. God Bless them all! Wishing everyone good luck at State Finals – have lots of fun, make new friends and visit with old ones, cherish the memories, and remember, if its meant to happen it will – if not, God has better plans for you in your future!

2017 Whatakid of the Year Whitlee Reed of Region V

by Catelyn Felts

ongratulations to this month’s Whatakid, Miss Whitlee Reed. The Region V competitor calls Center, Texas home and attends Center High School as a senior. Whitlee is a fourth year member of the Texas High School Rodeo Association and competes in the barrel racing and pole bending events. She is a 3-time state qualifier in the barrel racing and pole bending, 2-time reserve champion pole bender in Region V, 2016 Region V Champion Barrel Racer and 2014 Region V Co-Champion barrel racer. In addition to the titles she has obtained from the THSRA competitively, Whitlee said she has also gained a few character traits and has learned a few life lessons she will be able to carry with her for years to come. “Being involved in rodeo teaches you a lot at a young age - responsibility, trustworthiness, perseverance, and humility,” Whitlee said. “I have learned that in order to achieve anything you must rely on your faith, believe in yourself, have a vision, put in the hard work, and always remain determined and dedicated to succeeding,” Not only is Whitlee a strong competitor in the rodeo arena, and wise beyond her years, but she is also well established in her academics and extracurricular organizations. Whitlee is an A-honorroll student, varsity tennis player, FFA Lone star Degree recipient, 2-time state FFA creed qualifier, 2-time State FFA Livestock Judging qualifier, President of her FFA chapter, and a member of NHS, National Society of Success and Leadership, Young Ambassadors, Mu Alpha Theta, Beta Club, and Junior Chamber of Commerce. As involved as she is, it is not hard to believe she starts every day at 5 a.m. Whitlee explained how she typically begins her mornings by feeding her horses and other animals, attending school 7:42 a.m.-3:32 p.m., attending meetings for her extracurricular involvement, and then heading home to ride horses, feed and start homework. One can only imagine what Whitlee’s monthly planner might look like; however, out of all of the activities she participates in, she said rodeo takes top priority. “I have missed many school events and plans with friends, but I don’t believe that I’ve sacrificed anything,” Whitlee said. “I love to rodeo, and I wouldn’t want my life any other way.”

Upon graduation, Whitlee plans to attend Texas A&M University in pursuit of a degree in animal science. She said she would like to continue her rodeo career on the collegiate level by becoming a member of the Texas Aggie Rodeo Team. Whitlee expressed how honored she feels to be selected as this month’s Whatakid for Region V. “Being able to rodeo with some of the best makes this sport exciting and fun,” Whitlee said. “I appreciate this opportunity to shine for my region, as well as myself. I am proud to say this is an accomplishment I will certainly not overlook.” We know Whitlee will continue to accomplish great things in her future, and we wish her the best of luck as she embarks on a new chapter of her life postgraduation!

tate Finals are upon us and for many it is a stressful, but exciting time of the year. The relationship between horse and rider is an inseparable bond that has had many hardships and success all throughout the years. This relationship will impact your life forever and will teach each one of you what is important in life and how to act towards others as well as not being selfish. One important virtue that carries on in and out

of the arena is how someone treats others and how someone carries themselves. Many will agree that being a THSRA member and having responsibilities such as taking care of horses and having others/animals needs ahead of their own has built character and moral. There has been trying and rough times throughout the years, but in the end the success is twice as rewarding knowing giving up was not a question. The tremendously fierce competition in Abilene is one to remember; other great additions that complete finals is the truck push, nightly jackpots, and the Ariat Olympics. Having been to finals before knowing that there is not another opportunity like this one is hard to grasp. Closing this chapter of y’alls lives is happy and sad in the same breath. Knowing that there are greater adventures to look forward to, but knowing where you have been and what has given many

We’re Outta Here! ADVICE FROM SENIORS AND THEIR MOMS!

S

By Mollee

Herrmann – Performance Reporter

o another chapter is closing for many of us as we move on into college and our futures! For my last article, I decided advice from my Region VIII fellow seniors and friends, along with their loyal moms would be a fitting farewell! From me, Mollee Herrmann – Class of George West High School 2017 – My favorite thing about Region VIII is the family history! My dad rodeoed in El Ocho, along with all three of my aunts! If you look around at most of Region VIII, you will find a former dad, uncle or cousin in the mix of almost all of our members! My dad competed against several of my friend’s fathers, and for that matter, back in the day of his youth rodeo, he competed with and beat many of the Region VIII moms! His pole bending and straight barrels skills are on point…just ask him to take a horse through the poles, and stand back! My mom used to cringe when he would turn his cap around backwards and run at those six poles! My favorite memory would be all of the trips to state finals, whether it was stalls full of water in Gonzales after torrential rains at Junior High State Finals, or hail storms in Abilene, or passing the Berry

Family as they were stuck with a blow out, or some other random mechanical breakdown, on the side of the road. The memories of traveling to state finals and camping all week with the people who have become my second families, is irreplaceable! I will be attending Tarleton State University to obtain a degree in Wildlife Sustainability and Ecosystems Sciences. I hope to pursue a career as a Wildlife Biologist and travel the world studying and protecting endangered animals! My advice to the up and comings is don’t take things so serious…work hard, BUT HAVE FUN! If you aren’t having fun, why are you working so hard? From my mom aka Lori Herrmann – My favorite memory of Region VIII is all of the time we spent as a family watching the girls and the rest of our rodeo family, do what they loved. Being able to spend time with my parents, and my mom-in-law at the countless rodeos over the years is definitely time well spent! Region VIII is great because of the people who dedicate their time to the kids! We have some great working parents who came together for the last decade to put on some of the best rodeos ever! Our parents were hard working and generous with their time and energy, and I will never forget being able to work alongside of so many awesome families! My hope for My Mollee is that she continues to work hard and strive to accomplish her dreams…..preferably the dreams that involve the United States and non-violent animals! LOL….My biggest wish for her is happiness and fulfillment and that she

MADRES DE OCHO


one day be blessed with a family that is as awesome as ours! My advice to parents is pretty cliché….enjoy EVERY SINGLE minute…the wins, the losses, the day in and day out practices…soak it all in, because in a minute, your kids will be grown! From Zoey Wiaktrek – Fighting Aggie Class of 2021! My favorite thing about Region VIII is how the contestants and families care about each other. I was at Region VIII for all of my Junior High years, and then left the region for my freshman and sophomore years. When I came back to Region VIII, my biggest memory was the welcoming arms and smiling faces that greeted me! I remember feeling like I was home again and the that the stress of making the decision to move back was the right one! My favorite thing about Region VIII is that the members and their families truly care about each other. There isn’t a sense of competition amongst members. Everyone cheers everyone else on. I never once felt like someone was “gunning” for me! My advice would be to always stay positive after the bad runs and humble after the good runs! I am attending Texas A&M University where I am pursuing a degree in Animal Science and plan to be in Livestock Pharmaceutical Sales! From Zoeys’ Mom aka Kristen – My favorite memory was coming home to Region VIII after being at another region for 2 years. This was the year that Zoey won the breakaway saddle – it was the best year ever! I think that rodeo has taught Zoey about working hard. Nothing comes to those who aren’t willing to work very hard for it! My hope is that Zoey continues to work hard to achieve her goals and to always find that passion in life that pushes her to always do her best while having fun! My advice to up and coming parents is to push your children to do their best while telling them that its ok when bad runs happen…don’t focus on the negative, but always find something positive to share with your child about their run! From Morgan Arnold – Tarleton State University! My favorite memory of Region VIII was in junior high when I was warming up and almost ran into Mollee, and she gave me a really ugly look…..that led to a really

great friendship! My favorite thing about youth rodeo and Region VIII is the lifelong friends that I have gained as a member of Region VIII! Also, I was able to learn so much about responsibility. My advice to the young people coming up is to always take your shot…don’t wait for something to happen because you may have already missed your only opportunity! I am attending Tarleton State and majoring in Education in hopes of becoming a superintendent! I will be on the Tarleton Rodeo Team and am excited about continuing to compete! From Morgan’s mom aka Tracy – My favorite memory of Region VIII is the Senior Presentation at our last rodeo. I loved seeing all of the seniors ride or walk in and meet their parents and take a picture while the announcer read their biographies! It is very exciting to see all of these kids entering a new and exciting phase in their lives! I enjoyed watching the kids cheer for and help each other. The comments – whether a good or bad run – were hilarious! I’ve heard kids say, “well, how did you do” the answer, “I hit two poles”…the response, “oh, I hit three…I WIN”! My hope for Morgan is that she finds what makes her happy in life. It isn’t always about who has the most money, it’s about being happy with your job and loving the life you create! This is an exciting time for all of these seniors as they embark on a journey that will help them define the rest of the their lives! I pray they all find what makes them happy! From Will Wright – Class of Orange Grove High School 2017 – My advice is short and easy – PRACTICE HARD! My favorite thing about Region VIII is the girls and my friends that I have gained throughout the years. I will be on the Tarleton State University Rodeo Team in the Fall of 2017 and will be pursuing a degree in Electronic Engineering. I I hope to become an Electronic Engineer! From Will’s mom aka Brandi – My favorite memory of Region VIII is the many lifelong friends and memories that we have made throughout the years. I love the way that the kids and parents in Region VIII would stick together for the good of the kids. If there was a need, there was always someone who would

step up and help. My hope for Will is that one day he will make a name for himself and become the owner of his own electrical company. I hope to he finds true happiness and fulfillment in all that he does and never forget to thank the Lord every day for all of his blessings. My advice is to remember that it isn’t all about the money, the big rig, or the most expensive horses. None of that matters if you don’t learn the lesson behind the sport – be thankful, stay humble, learn responsibility and sportsmanship, and gain a sense of accomplishment along the way. Making lifelong memories and learning lessons you take with you forever is to be cherished. Share your future with generations of cowboys and cowgirls to come! Well, Region VIII and THSRA, my time has come to an end. I can’t express how much I have learned and gained from my membership with THSRA. From my family to yours – prayers for a safe and prosperous future! VIVA EL OCHO! Don’t be a stranger, and remember what my POP said “OUT WORK EM”…..

By EMALEE HOFFMANN– Performance Reporter

M

y high school rodeo year is coming to a close, along with many others. There is only one rodeo left before some travel to Wyoming. For many this is their last hoorah and the last time they will compete in the Abilene pen. It is also a time to reflect on where we’re going and where we’ve been. It’s rodeo finals for all and for the seniors, its graduation. No more high school rodeo and no more high school. You never know the value of a moment until it’s gone so make every moment count. I remember learning about the Ariat Reporter position and wanting to be more involved with my region. Little did I know how much of an impact it would have not only in my rodeo life, but in my everyday life as well. I’ve gotten to see the backstage of my region and meet so many amazing people. It’s helped me be a part of the action and make the memories that will surely last me a lifetime. We all have that something special

in our region that has helped us make those memories, whether it be a friend, a horse, or a position we never thought we would see ourselves in. These are the times we will never forget. Being a senior it has come to a point for me where I’m just ready to get that diploma and begin the next chapter. Moving on to college or starting out on a new journey is all anyone can really think about. This seems to be true with every class though, as we get close to the end and we are ready to move on. We need to cherish these moments, because we will never get them back. You hear people all the time saying they wish they were back in high school because it was so easy and fun. While it may not seem like it now, that time will come for us one day. You’ll want to remember all that you did in school and you’ll wish you had one more chance to step into the arena during a high school rodeo. This being said, cherish the moments, don’t take a single thing for granted because you might just wish one day you would have appreciated it a little more. Finals are right around the corner and for some of us it will be our last. It’s important to be on you’re a-game and compete to the best of your ability. Only four go to nationals in each event, so not all of us will make it. This can be a huge let down for some, but it’s important to remember the time you had at finals and all the good time spent getting to that point. God has a plan for each and every one of us, and sometimes we don’t realize the true value of a moment, until it becomes a memory. Enjoy the little things; laugh, be kind and make every moment not only in your life, but for someone else. There is only a little bit of time left in high school rodeo for some, and another couple years left for others. Regardless of where you stand, make every moment count. Don’t get too caught up in the destination, remember it’s how you are going to get there that counts. Make sure you are making every part of your high school career count and that you give 100%. Good Luck at Finals to everyone and remember to enjoy the ride, I know I have. Matthew 6:33-34 “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”

JUNIOR HIGH 46

2016-2017 TJHRA Student Officers Say Farewell SIERRA SCHUENEMAN TJHRA Student President It is almost unfathomable about how quickly the past three years have flown by. In the one thousand, and ninety five days that I have been a member of the Texas Junior High School Rodeo Association, I can truly say that they have been vital in shaping me into the person I have become. I would like to thank each of you personally, for being a member of the greatest youth rodeo organization that one could be involved in! Mrs. Anne Dollery, Mr. Tony Lucina, Mr. John Bland, and the countless number of volunteers that help make Texas Junior High Rodeo the organization that it is, each member owes you a thank you for your stellar contributions to our Junior High Rodeo experience. Jennings Rodeo Photography, thank you for your continued support of Texas Junior High and High School Rodeo, you contribute so much to our organization and capture some of the best moments of our lives on camera. J&J Rodeo Company, thank you for having spectacular stock during the finals so each contestant’s natural abilities are able to shine through. First off, I want to thank the members who allowed me to serve them as President and Vice President the past two years. I have gained a greater appreciation for those individuals who give up so much of their time to make our state finals one of the greatest rodeos on earth. I have been able to witness firsthand the countless hours that are put in to ensure that the contestants and their families are the top priority during the week that they call Gonzales home. Being an officer has truly been one of the best experiences of my life. Thank you TJHRA for introducing me to some of the greatest individuals I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Paisley, if you would've told me that our friendship would have existed two years ago, well I would blatantly call you crazy. Thanks for being the person who gets in trouble with me, whether we almost miss a grand entry because we were practicing the buddy barrel race, climbing rock walls with me, or convincing me into letting you do my makeup. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for you. Dugan, thanks for helping me make friends, I don't know how I could have made it in Arizona without you. Taylor, well you've done an incredible job representing the TJHRA, and I hope the next princess realizes what large shoes and expectations she has to fill! To the families of my fellow officers and mine as well, thank you for allowing us to represent this incredible organization; it truly has been an amazing two years serving. To the officers who will be granted the opportunity to represent the TJHRA, let me let you in on a few secrets, Mrs.

Anne is ALWAYS right, and secondly, do not take your time in Gonzales, or representing the sport of rodeo for granted. I guarantee you will wish you hadn’t. Best of luck to each contestant as they vie for state championships, national qualifier positions and even officer elections. I hope that you accomplish every goal you have set for yourself, and enjoy the week that is the state finals, you'll miss it when it’s over. Those of you who are curious about running for an office, I encourage you to do so. You have no idea what you're in for! God Bless and signing off one last time, Sierra Schueneman


PAISLEY PIERCE TJHRA Student Vice President FAREWELL JH STATE RODEO ASSOCIATION Howdy! Wow…what a great year it has been, representing TJHRA as the Vice-President, and my last year in this wonderful organization. Someone once said, “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” This quote shows everything I have found here in the Texas Junior High Rodeo Association. This past year serving as the TJHRA Vice-President was a remarkable learning experience – but also a great responsibility; a responsibility to uphold the values, traditions, and heritage for the sport of rodeo. I learned better leadership qualities, met some amazing people, and made remarkable memories. I encourage each of you to step out of your comfort zone and run for a state officer position! I thought this quote was very fitting: “This is not a goodbye, my friends, this is a thank you.” Nicholas Sparks. To all the TJHRA board members…Thank you for leading this strong organization. You have shown me what it takes to be great leader. Thank you for making this an incredible experience for us all. All of the hard work you put into this organization certainly shows. You all have stepped up to the plate and are great role models for all contestants to look up to. To Mrs. Anne Elise Dollery, you are simply amazing and fun! You always had the children in your best interest. Thank you for all you do! Maci, thank you for always organizing events that all the officers would enjoy! To Sierra, Taylor, and Dugan: thank you for being a great team to be a part of. We had a blast! You guys where the BEST to share this past year traveling and promoting the sport of rodeo. Memories from the stock shows, National convention dance and meetings, Top Golf, and Bowling Alley I will cherish forever! So, I leave you all with this….I encourage everyone here today to take every day experiences and turn them into golden moments. Life is too short to take the little things for granted. We all have one chance at life, and now is when it starts. Best of luck to all contestants this week; dream big, learn more, do more, become a leader!

TEXAS JUNIOR HIGH RODEO ASSOCIATION NEWS DUGAN CHANDLER TJHRA Student Secretary Greetings, I appreciate the opportunity I had to serve as TJHRA secretary this year. I was glad that I was able to learn more about this awesome organization. TJHRA has allowed me to meet new friends, travel to some great places and represent TEXAS well. I would like to thank the TJHRA Board for allowing us to have such a wonder year. Have a great summer and blessings down the road!! Dugan Chandler

TAYLOR MOBBS TJHRA Princess As my year as Miss. TJHRA comes to an end, I have often wondered how I would describe the last 12 months of my life. Fun… Exciting… Challenging… These are all great words but the words that sum my year up would have to be… life changing. When the crown was placed upon my head last year, it fulfilled a lifelong dream that I have had since I was 5 years old. This title has shown me the importance of being a good leader, being a good speaker and being a positive voice for the sport of rodeo and the contestants. This title has changed my life by giving me great opportunities to meet and work with many terrific people such as Mr. Tony Lacina, Mrs. Anne Dollery, Mr. John Bland, Ms. Dawn Brenner, Sierra, Paisley and Dugan. I want to thank each of these people for their support and for believing in me. I also want to thank Texas High School Rodeo, Texas Junior High Rodeo, Maci and Holly for the trips to Dallas and Fort Worth. I enjoyed meeting many of our great sponsors and especially holding the same hat that was given to President Donald

48

Trump by the Resistol hat company. This past year I have had the great privilege to meet and to gain valuable advice from some of the top rodeo athletes such as Trevor Brazile, Matt Reeves and Amberley Snyder. One common thread among them all was to always make wise choices and to always be the best competitor and person you can be in and out of the arena. Never take for granted your talent. They said to mix hard work with talent every day and to never give up no matter what life might throw your way. Last but not least, I would like to thank God for giving me this special opportunity to serve Him as Miss Texas Junior High Rodeo Princess. I pray that my light has shown brightly for Him. As my time as the Princess has come to a close, I do not leave you with a farewell or a good bye, but by simply signing off, my mission here is complete. May God bless you. Taylor Mobbs
