Becoming the UP Rodeo Queen was a childhood dream come true. Having the opportunity to represent something that I love was indescribable. Throughout my reign I traveled to many rodeos in the U.P. and Wisconsin. I also made appearances in parades and other public events. One of my favorite experiences as queen was when I visited the Niagara schools kindergarten class. Being able to share my rodeo knowledge with little cowboys and cowgirls was incredible because I was once in their “boots”. I highly encourage any girl who is even the slightest bit interested to run for a title. Not only have I gained wonderful memories, but lasting friendships. I hope to see you at the rodeo! — Clara Churchill, Miss U.P. Rodeo 2015
