Elizabeth Davis works on her family ranch and likes to play sports at CUHS
Hello, my name is Elizabeth Davis. I am 16 years old and a junior at Crane Union High School. My parents are Paul and Toni Davis.
When I’m not attending school, I’m normally working on the Alvord Ranch — riding, roping and just helping out. I live on the Alvord Ranch, which is located below the tallest peak on the east side of the Steens Mountain.
I have four older siblings — Justin, who is the oldest of all of us, and then the triplets, Cody, Matt and Kailee. The triplets also attend Crane Union High School.
In the past I have participated and played in sports, such as volleyball and wrestling. I also participate in FFA, and am currently the Crane FFA Chapter treasurer. In FFA I am mostly involved in the livestock judging, soil judging, parliamentary procedure, speeches and ag sales, to name just a few.
When participating in FFA, it teaches us many qualities, such as leadership. This is one of the qualities I have to give, along with my people skills and the way I will represent our county with my great respect for it.
Becoming the Harney County Fair, Rodeo and Race Meet queen would be an honor to me, because I’d be able to represent the county I grew up in.
Thank you for your time, and I hope to see you at the Harney County Fair.
Kiely Banton will be the 2011-12 vice president of her FFA chapter at BHS
Hello, my name is Kiely Banton. I am 16 years old, and a junior at Burns High School. I am the proud child of Kris and Christi Banton, and I have a brother and a sister. I am involved in FFA, church activities, cross country and helping out wherever needed.
I have had the opportunity to be the 2010-11 Burns FFA Chapter secretary and the 2011-12 chapter vice president. In this amazing organization I have been privledged to participate in many judging events, write and present many speeches and have been able to work with animals on a daily basis.
This year’s fair will be very positive, hectic and the best week of fair I have been able to participate in, all because of an amazing opportunity called Rodeo Court. I am so excited to be able to take part in this endeavor this year. My horse, Tabby, and I have been together for four years on and off. We have both learned a tremendous amount about each other, and how to improve at riding, thanks to Sallianne Kelly.
I would like to represent Harney County as the 2012 Harney County Rodeo Queen, with the help of my main gal, Tabby. If I have the honor of being crowned queen, I will bring a number of positive attributes to the arena. I have the responsibility, character and positive attitude needed to represent Harney County to the best of my ability. I am also a very organized, happy person, who is able to speak to the public of all ages.
Being crowned the 2012 Harney County Rodeo Queen would mean the world to me, and I would love to have the opportunity to represent Harney County across the state.
