2019 Sheridan WYO Rodeo Scholarship winners
Congratulations to Taylor Greig, Quinn Heyneman and Reata Cook, our 2019 Sheridan WYO Rodeo Scholarship recipients!
Each year the WYO Rodeo awards three Sheridan County graduating seniors with a $1,000 scholarship to their school of choice. The Sheridan WYO Rodeo relies heavily on the volunteer efforts of the community members. We give special consideration to any student actively involved in our volunteer group, the WYO Rodeo SPURS. Their support is vital to the Sheridan WYO Rodeo during Rodeo Week and throughout the year. The WYO Rodeo Board of Directors are very proud to announce that all three of the scholarship winners this year are members of the SPURS. It is our hope Taylor, Quinn and Reata will continue to volunteer and encourage future students to do so as well.
