Help us welcome 2018 Newport Rodeo Queen Faith Jones
Hello everyone! My name is Faith Jones and I am honored to be your 2018 Newport Rodeo Queen! Currently, I am a senior at Newport High School and will be graduating in June. I have lived in Newport my entire life and have been going to the Newport Rodeo since I was a month old. From as far back as I can remember, it has been a dream of mine to become the Newport Rodeo Queen. It’s my goal to represent this association with pride and give little girls and young ladies a great role model. I strive to always be a very well-rounded individual. I have been a member of 4-H for years, getting to compete at State in gaming and placing 2nd in the International Flag race on my family’s calf roping/breakaway horse. I work hard to maintain good grades in school, taking math and science classes that will help me further my career goals of going into veterinary medicine. I am a member of HOSA Future Health Professionals and have been serving as the Region 1 Vice President. This year I am also the president of our NHS Honor Society Club and was chosen as the Soroptimist Girl of the Month for September. I used to play sports, like basketball and track, but gave those up to focus on my roping skills. Rodeo has been a part of my life since the day I was born and I wouldn’t want it any other way. I started out traveling to rodeos where my dad would compete in tie down roping and then transitioned to entering my first junior rodeo. Back then I competed in a variety of events such as barrels, poles, goat tying, steer daubing and breakaway roping. Last year I began competing in breakaway in the Pro West Rodeo Association and I am excited to continue competing throughout this season as well. 2018 is going to be an incredible year and I am beyond excited to begin traveling across the Inland Northwest representing the Newport Rodeo Association and the Newport community. Please bring the whole family to the Newport Rodeo, either as competitors or spectators, and enjoy the fantastic show brought to you by our dedicated, tireless team of volunteers. Nothing beats the unity and pride you feel hearing our Newport crowd joining together to sing our National Anthem. I hope to see there!
