Legendary cowgirl and renowned horsewoman Pam Minick has been announced as the Miss Rodeo America Scholarship Foundation’s newest Board of Directors member.

The Miss Rodeo America Scholarship Foundations correlates directly with the pageant that takes place annually and has made a large impact on the organization since its inception in 1997. The Scholarship Foundation awards approximately $115,000 annually in educational scholarships to those competing in the Miss Rodeo America Pageant.

Minick began etching her name into history in 1973 as she became the youngest-ever Miss Rodeo America title holder at age 19 and has continued to pave the way for cowgirls ever since. Her dedication to the Western Industry has earned her many titles as she has been inducted into the National Cowboy Hall of Fame as well as the National Cowgirl Hall of Fame while also having deep involvement in numerous non-profit organizations.

“As a former Miss Rodeo America, Pam knows how lifechanging holding a rodeo queen title can be. Pam has been a trailblazer for women in the western world and many of us look up to her and respect her dedication to our sport,” MRASF President Karie O’Donnell Herbers said. “It is an honor for us to have Pam join the Scholarship Foundation Board and we know that she will be a great addition to our hard-working group of volunteers.”

The Miss Rodeo America Pageant is held each December at the South Point Casino in Las Vegas.
