Taylor McNair is 23 years-old and the third Miss Rodeo Mississippi to wear the coveted crown. In addition to the title of Miss Rodeo America 2019, Taylor earned the Appearance, Personality, and Written Test awards along with the Sherry Smith Memorial Scholarship, third place for her scrapbook and was the winner for the Chap Award.
In 2017, Taylor earned a Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Business with a concentration on Policy and Law from Mississippi State University. While attending MSU, she also competed on both the Equestrian and Rodeo teams. Taylor plans to enhance her strong voice for agriculture by pursuing a Doctor of Jurisprudence degree with a Master of Law in Agriculture and Food Law.
During her reign as the official representative of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association,
McNair will travel around 100,000 miles and appear at nearly 100 rodeo performances. Along the rodeo trail she’ll make appearances at schools, civic groups, and other special events. Attendance at these events is to educate the public and create awareness about the sport of rodeo, its sponsors, and its opportunities. Taylor will also serve as a spokesperson at a variety of promotional events and model in advertisements for key brands, sponsors, and publications of the Western industry.
Taylor is beyond thrilled to wear the Landstrom’s Black Hills Gold crown as it has been a dream of her’s for many years. Long Live Cowgirls.
