Montana Rodeo Hall of Fame

On Saturday, I had the great pleasure of attending the Montana Rodeo Hall of Fame Induction where our Rodeo Team was inducted. We were all very proud!

It was a fun evening. In addition to the excitement of this prestigious recognition, I ran into my childhood 4-H adviser, classmates from high school, and neighbors from when we lived in Miles City.

Go Trappers!

My family and I hosted the men's and women's basketball teams for dinner at my home last night. They play Williston State on Saturday. The women's game starts at 1:00; men's at 3:00. If you have not yet had a chance to see them play, this will be a good one.

Education Attainment Council Listening Session

Last Thursday we held one of nine statewide listening sessions on how to meet the state's post-secondary attainment goals at Northwest College.

Our listening session was the sight of the state's Facebook Live session. The Facebook Live archive is linked below. I was very pleased with the turn-out and the quality of the conversation.

In Meeteetse - #WeAreParkCounty

NWC Board Chair, Nada Larsen, and I visited with community members in Meeteetse to hear how NWC can better serve their community.

We also met with Superintendent Shane Odgen to discuss educational opportunities for Meeteetse High School students.

One of the highlights of the day (besides the trip to the Chocolatier) was lunch at the Senior Center where Mary Budd Flitner did a reading from her new book, My Ranch Too.

Park County is our home. We use the hashtag #WeAreParkCounty to give a shout-out when we come together with our neighbors and to celebrate each other.
