Letter of thanks: Devine queen lauds supporters

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the following local people and companies for sponsoring me in the Andy Devine Days Rodeo Pageant: Mavis Fulco-State Farm Insurance, Andy and Stacy Studer of Extreme Iron, Topock Route 66 Spa & Resort, T-Mobile of Bullhead City, Camera Works, Don Williams Jewelers, Jennings & Larson Dentistry, Performance Mobile Wash, Just Divine Photography and Tiffanie Schellie, Jamberry Nail Wraps & Thirty One Consultant. Without your financial support, competing for this title would not have been possible.

I would also like to give a special thanks to Carol Evans who allowed me to use her horse Holly in the competition as mine did not have the necessary skills. A thank you to Karen Babcock, my trainer, who introduced Carol and Holly to me. Karen worked with Holly and I in getting us ready for the competition and teaching us how to work together.

Last, a big thanks to Tiffany Leo, the Andy Devine Days Rodeo Pageant coordinator, who gave so much of her personal time in helping prepare all the contestants and the Kingsmen of Kingman who sponsored the pageant.
