Wheat-Aguirre, Old Chisholm Trail Drivers queen
The 2012 Old Chisholm Trail Drivers Queen is Erin D. Wheat-Aguirre of Nixon. She is the 16-year-old daughter of Janna Wheat of Nixon and Texas Ranger Randy Aguirre of Beeville.
Erin is a junior honor student at Nixon-Smiley High School. Along with horseback riding, Erin enjoys hunting and swimming, and is a state medalist in twirling. She is a life member of the San Antonio Livestock Exposition and a member of the Children of the Republic of Texas.
Her grandparents, Nathan and Dixell Wheat of Nixon, are members of the San Antonio Rodeo Trailride Committee, and the whole family has ridden with Old Chisholm since it began more than 50 years ago.
Erin says the best part of being a trailride queen is being able to meet and visit with people from all over the world, as well as spend time with close friends and family.
