2009 Rodeo Queen Nicole Shrock moves on to NPRA

Nicole Schrock, 2009 Sweet Home Rodeo Queen, has been named 2010 Miss Northwest Professional Rodeo Association.

As 2010 Miss NPRA, Schrock said, “I will do all that I can to support the communities that put on these great rodeos, the contestants that put their heart and soul into each ride and help the NPRA grow and reach out to more communities.”

Schrock also crowned the 2010 Sweet Home Rodeo queen, Olivia Simpson, on Jan. 23.

A lot of Sweet Home’s queens go on to different rodeos and have been successful, said Sweet Home Rodeo President Dick Coffin. The credit, he said, goes to Kellie Kem, who was the queen coordinator for many years.

“If anybody needs to be recognized, she does,” Coffin said.

Anyone interested in trying out for 2011 Miss Sweet Home Rodeo should email coordinator Bambi Wells by getting on the rodeo Web site http://www.sweethomerodeo.org and going to contact us/queencoordinator between now and August.
