PAHRUMP HS RODEO
Cowboys and cowgirls from all around the country made their way to the Pahrump Valley this past weekend for the annual Pahrump Junior High and High School Rodeo and the competition was a rousing, rowdy success.
Each year, the local rodeo club hosts a rodeo at the McCullough Arena in Petrack Park for the Nevada State Junior High and High School Rodeo Association, Krebs detailed, but these events are far from cheap to put together. That’s why partnerships with others is a crucial part of the rodeo club’s model. It is only through the collection of donations and the securing of sponsorships that these kinds of events can take place, so Krebs was sure to highlight all those who played a part in the success of the 2023 rodeo.
Contributing to the rodeo this year among many others was a $1,000 donation by the Pahrump Valley Rotary Club to help sponsor the kids with prizes. in addition Rotary feeds all the volunteers helping and to sell hamburgers, hot dogs nachos, soda and water to all participants and spectators to offset costs.
