Hello my name is Veronica Kern District 2 2016-2017 High School Rodeo Queen. I currently live in Santa Rosa and I'm senior at Santa Rosa High School. I've been a member of NHSRA and this will be my 4th and final year. The events I compete in are; barrel racing, pole bending, and goat tying. In the beginning of this last Rodeo year I set a goal to make it to Nationals for pole bending. Well, I didn't make it to Nationals but I made it to the State Finals in Bishop and a month later to Sliver State in Winnamukka. I can't more proud, for those who did make it to Nationals! Congratulations!
Our District had a rough start to last year with the Lake County fires but our D2 Rodeo kids strived to succeed through thick and thin and rode on.
Again, our prayers and hearts go out to the D2 Rodeo families that have again suffered another fire this year and again lost their homes. We are strong and will again strive on this year. We will set goals and reach them by leaps and bounds.
Being your Queen and Ambassador to Rodeo has already been such an honor. I dedicated this year to building our District 2 membership, mentorship, leadership and most of all enjoying my last year in CHSRA as a Senior.
