Crouch family plans memorial rodeo
Jordan Carrington, the daughter of Paula Crouch of Smiley and the late Roger Crouch, seeks sponsorships to help her become the first queen of the first-ever Roger Crouch Memorial Rodeo. Proceeds will benefit the Roger Crouch Memorial Scholarship fund.
Jordan, a student at Nixon-Smiley High School, said her father lived his dream of being a bull rider. Tragically, after six years of competition, Crouch was involved in a bull riding accident that severed his spinal cord. He passed away three days later on Jan. 18, 2011.
Crouch served as a 4-H leader, school board member, a Texas High School Rodeo leader, and was involved with the Nixon-Smiley Livestock show.
When he passed away, his family started a scholarship in his name. Since then, 15 scholarships have been awarded. The family has teamed up with the Crazy J Rodeo Co. to host a rodeo Saturday, July 20, at the Nixon-Smiley Livestock Show Arena in Nixon.
This will include a rodeo queen contest.
“Since this rodeo is in my dad’s name, I would really like to win the first year and make him proud,” Jordan said. The winner will be the contestant who raises the most funds from sponsorships and advance ticket sales.
Six sponsorship packages range from $150 to $2,000.
For more information, contact Jordan at 830-857-2033. To make a donation, send checks payable to “Roger Crouch Memorial Scholarship” to P.O. Box 337, Smiley, TX 78159.
