2017 Silver Spur Rodeo Royalty
2017 Yuma Jaycee’s Silver Spur Rodeo Queen: Megan Hardt
Hello rodeo fans, my name is Megan Hardt and I am the 2017 Silver Spur Rodeo Queen. I was born and raised in Yuma and graduated from Cibola High school. I am currently a student at Arizona Western College majoring in Animal Production with a minor in Agricultural Science. I will be transferring to the University of Arizona to complete my degree. While I am at school I will be continuing on my rodeo queen path. I have been blessed with the opportunity to serve as the Silver Spur Rodeo Queen with our Teen Queen Alyssa Troy. Together we have traveled across the state of Arizona, making memories that will last a lifetime. None of this would have been possible without the support from some wonderful sponsors. Special thanks to my gracious sponsors who contributed to the success of this year; Farley with EXIT Realty Yuma for being a contestant sponsor as well as the beautiful queen saddle sponsor, and 10X Ranch Products LLC for their generous contribution for travel expenses. My year would not have been possible without the love and support of my family and friends.
2017 Yuma Jaycee’s Silver Spur Rodeo Teen Queen: Alyssa Troy
Alyssa has enjoyed the opportunity to represent and promote the Silver Spur Rodeo, the western way of life, and her hometown of Yuma. She is the 17-year-old daughter of Nicole Troy and Terry Umphress and attends Gila Ridge High School. Alyssa is competitive in the Yuma Progressive Barrel Racing Association, various jackpot barrel races, and is active in the FFA Gila Ridge High School chapter as well as in Yuma County 4H. From the time she was a little girl Alyssa has been coming to the Silver Spur Rodeo with her mom and papa, where she developed a love for rodeo and the way of life it represents. This is not Alyssa’s first rodeo – or rodeo queen title! She previously held the title of Yuma County Sheriff Posse Attendant and Show Low Deuces Wild Lil Deuce and looks forward to continuing to represent PRCA rodeo. All of her accomplishments this year would not be possible without sponsors. Thank you to sponsor Umphress Trucking and Trailer for their support throughout the year.
