Miss Rodeo America 2014

The main character for my second book, Seeds of Summer, is a former Miss Rodeo Kansas. Even though my research for this book is over, I still enjoy keeping up with current rodeo queens. I thought you might enjoy reading a news release from the 2014 pageant held in Las Vegas this past December.

Lawrence, Mississippi is home to Paige Nicholson, Miss Rodeo Mississippi 2013 and Miss Rodeo America 2014. Paige is a graduate of Mississippi State University with a Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Information Science. She plans to obtain a Law Degree from the University of Mississippi and pursue a career that allows her to be an advocate for agriculture and protect the western way of life.

When time allows, Paige enjoys: Horseback Riding, Team Roping, Barrel Racing, Fishing, Boating, Working on her family's Beef Cattle and Row Crop Farm, and writing for Cattle Business in Mississippi Magazine. Paige has served as a volunteer for the 4-H horse project, Relay for Life, and assisting as a special needs horse show instructor. “Volunteering has allowed me to build connections in several communities in my state. Service fosters camaraderie and fellowship in groups of volunteers while giving hope and support to recipients.”

“It will be an honor to officially represent an organization whose values so closely resemble my own. I believe families should always look out for each other, and that developing and educating the next generation is our greatest responsibility in life. Miss Rodeo America is an outstanding example of a young lady, a cowgirl, and a person who is strong in character. It is my wish that each person I meet becomes a true rodeo fan, and that I can tell the story of agriculture and the western way of life with knowledge and enthusiasm.”
