Miss Rodeo USA
Paige won the title at the 2014 Miss Rodeo America Pageant, held at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, NV December 2-9. The Miss Rodeo America Pageant is held annually in conjunction with the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. Reigning State Rodeo Queens compete for the coveted crown of Miss Rodeo America in the areas of appearance, horsemanship, and personality.
Other mid-south queens competing for the national title were Kirbi Allen, Miss Rodeo Arkansas; Shelby Kadrovich, Miss Rodeo Louisiana; and Lorryn Bolte, Miss Rodeo Missouri.
Paige hails from Lawrence, Mississippi. She is a graduate of Mississippi State University with a Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Information Science. Her future plans are to obtain a Law Degree from the University of Mississippi and pursue a career as an advocate for agriculture and the western way of life.
Paige’s equestrian activities include Team Roping and Barrel Racing. She works on her family's beef cattle and row crop farm and enjoys writing for the Cattle Business section in Mississippi Magazine. Paige has served as a volunteer for the 4-H horse project, Relay for Life, and assisted 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,” she said.
Paige is thrilled to be Miss Rodeo America! “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.”
Miss High School Rodeo
Hunter Rae Rackham is the 2013-2014 Miss High School Rodeo America. Hunter is from Menan, Idaho. Emma Williams from Chattanoga, Tenn. placed seventh in the pageant. Summer Weldon from Martin, Tenn. was 14th in the pageant.
The National High School Finals Rodeo brought nearly 1,500 contestants from all across the United States, Canada and Australia to the week-long competition last July in Rock Springs, Wyoming. The Tie-Down Roping Champion was Marcus Theriot of Poplarville, Miss., with a score of 27.09 seconds on three head. Marcus was also the All-Around Rookie Cowboy at the 2012 National High School Rodeo Finals Rodeo. Marcus is the son of 1994 PRCA world champion tie-down roper Herbert Theriot. In 2011, the teen won the chute dogging, tie-down roping and team roping (with Kelton Tynes) on his way to the all-around championship.
