Hello again! This is Mckensie Henson, your 2015 Miss Teen Rodeo Oregon. I have been having so much fun representing Oregon as an ambassador for rodeo! What a great honor it truly is! On the 25th of June, I had a busy, and hot, amazing day! I started off by attending the McMinnville Farmers’ Market for their Kid’s day! It was a blast meeting all the amazing people who attended! Not to mention drinking the amazing lemonade and eating the fresh fruit, that was extremely convenient for the 90 degree weather! Afterwards, I headed to the Jr Miss/Miss Teen Rodeo Oregon pageant orientation in Philomath. I had so much fun meeting the girls I hadn’t met yet, and also spending time with the girls I already knew! It’s such a great group of contestants for both Junior and Teen! Make sure to make it over and watch the girls compete to find out who our 2016 titleholders are, July 10th and 11th!
To end June, I attended The Biggest Little Show on the Coast, the Tillamook County Rodeo on the 27th and the 28th! I am so grateful that I have become such great friends with their amazing queen and host, Sarah Hammond. She did an amazing job representing their county! The June Dairy Parade was awesome, as always! I also finally got the chance to spend some time with my friend Mikayla Smith, the 2015 Miss Teen Rodeo Washington! To begin July right, I went to the St. Paul rodeo on the 4th! I can’t think of a better way to spend your 4th, than in the amazing atmosphere of St. Paul! The parade was so much fun! I got to walk in between Julie and Dez! Having all three of us titleholders at the same rodeo is such an awesome thing, and such a great time! I can’t wait for the Philomath Frolic and Rodeo to host our pageant! If you do come, you might want to catch their queen, Darian Anderton and I in the donkey races! We mean business!
Thanks for reading everybody, I can’t wait to get back to you with everything I’ll be up to in the rest of July, not to mention the names of our 2016 Miss Teen and Junior Miss Rodeo Oregon!
