Grant County, what an accomplishment, 100 years of fairs. This truly shows generational dedication, passion, and hard work. I am so honored to be a part of the 2009 Grant County Fair and Rodeo Court, serving as your Princess during the Fair's 100th Anniversary.
I am happily working with my family on a 3,500-acre ranch in Kimberly that we lease. My family and I run Registered Black Angus and commercial cattle operation. I have lived on a ranch and raised cattle all my life. I believe we are truly blessed to live in a country where we are free to do what we love.
Growing up in a family with deep roots in ranching, rodeo, and agriculture, I have learned the value of hard work, sportsmanship, respect for people and animals, and the western way of life. While learning the "Western Way of Life" I was always taught to have pride in a job well done. Whether that is raising cattle, gathering pairs off the mountain, or cooking a hearty meal for my family.
Because so much has been given to me, I am thankful to be giving something back, by not only representing Grant County and NPRA Rodeo, but also the wonderful people that still take pride in our annual fair and rodeo and make Grant County what it is today.
