Prince-elect John “Colby” Shodrock is the 18-year-old son of Stephen and Donna Shodrock of Floresville. His grandparents are John and Marcy Shodrock, and Vera Cordes of Floresville and the late Oney Cordes. Colby has one sister, Shae Lynn Shodrock, who attends Floresville High School as a freshman.

Colby, a senior at Floresville High School, is very active in sports and other school organizations. He is currently a proud member of the mighty Tiger football team playing the position of starting quarterback and captain. Colby is also a member of the varsity baseball team, where he plays second base and pitcher. Colby is a member of the National Honor Society and was named the September student of the month. He has also been a member of the Link Crew for two consecutive years.

Colby is also very active in 4-H. He has held many offices at the county and district levels. He currently serves as vice president of the Wilson County Council and second vice president of the District 10 4-H Council. In 4-H, he has competed in many different competitions, winning top honors at the county, district, and state levels in Entomology, Foods and Nutrition, Nutrition Quiz Bowl, Food Challenge, Clothing and Textiles, and Educational Presentations. Colby is also very active with the sheep project. Not only has he excelled in this project at the Wilson County Junior Livestock Show, placing with top honors and winning showmanship, but he has also been very fortunate to place many of his animals at the San Antonio, Houston, and Austin stock shows.

Colby, an active member of St. Anthony’s Catholic Church, dedicates many hours volunteering his time helping members of the community. He also assists with the CCD Program and has been very active over the years helping with the church festival. Colby has been fortunate to have served as a Teen ACTS leader as well.

Colby and his family have a long history with the Peanut Festival. His mother and father served as queen and king of the 1981 Court of Our Traditional Peanut Festivals. Colby was fortunate to serve as crown bearer to Queen Ashley Ortmann in the 2000 Court of New Horizons. His sister, Shae, served as train bearer to Queen Caitlin Abbott in the 2006 Court of Nature’s. He has had many aunts, uncles, and cousins serve on past Peanut Festival Courts, both Royal and Children’s Court. In the past, Colby’s mom was an active member of the Peanut Festival board and served as president in 2000. Colby’s grandmother, Verna Cordes, was an active member of the Peanut Festival for many, many years, serving as a board member and a designer of the elaborate gowns for multiple years as well.

Colby would like to extend his appreciation to Princess-elect Katelyn Nicole “Katie” Smith for giving him the opportunity and the honor to serve as her escort for the Court of America’s Majestic Beauty. Colby would like to send a special thank-you to his grandmother and sister, Shae, who constructed his royal sash. Colby would also like to thank Katie’s family, his family members, devoted friends, Mr. and Mrs. Reile, and the entire Peanut Festival Association for their continued support. He is looking forward to a wonderful year.
