A Photo Journey with… Jordan Tierney Miss Rodeo America 2020
MISS RODEO AMERICA SCHOLARSHIP FOUNDATION INC
Amid the Coronavirus, our lives have become disheveled and suddenly the things that we thought were essential, have now been placed on the back burner as we focus on much more important things. I, along with the entire board of Directors of the Miss Rodeo America Scholarship Foundation, sincerely hope and pray that you are well as we move into a brighter future.
I recently inquired of our Foundation President, Karie O’Donnell-Herbers, for anything particular to include in this message and her words were, “Well, we need to figure out how we’re going to raise money!” Her reply, while being funny with me, is right on track. Even though our lives have a much different routine, your Foundation Board continues to work to garner funding by every means possible. In case you have forgotten, approximately $100,000.00 dollars is given each year to contestant winners for use in education. That is a huge amount when you really think about it right? It is important to keep up with funding so that our base does not dwindle.
We understand that right now is a tough time to ask for donations however we appreciate any contribution to the cause. Consider donating in memory or in honor of someone in lieu of flowers etc. or becoming a monetary host for the Miss Rodeo America Scholarship Foundation Luncheon which is held annually for contestants of the Miss Rodeo America Pageant in December or donate toward the purchase of roses. We always take financial contributions, no matter what!
Regarding Scholarship Foundation Raffle, those tickets will be on the way to you very soon! Tickets will be mailed to contestants, NAC, National Directors, etc. and 100% of the proceeds goes toward scholarships. As an incentive, contestants receive a 20% commission on anything they sell OVER the initial $250.00 and then, the contestant who sells the most will also earn the Achievement Award. Now, you certainly cannot beat that deal!
We always, look to streamline our efforts for effectiveness while we maintain a solid and growing bottom line.
If you are currently a State Titleholder or a Lady in Waiting, keep your focus on doing good and being kind to others even when it is difficult. Your time will come, and those kindness miles will shine so very brightly. Enjoy this incredibly special time with your families as you prepare for this wonderful experience.
I leave each of you with this from Luke 6:38, “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
Blessings to you all,
