Saturday, August 13, 1955 marked the first Miss Rodeo America
Pageant, beginning over a half-century worth of tradition. The Miss
Rodeo America Hall of Fame honors exceptional individuals and groups who
have contributed to the success of the Miss Rodeo America organization,
pageant and its perpetuation.
The Miss Rodeo America organization is a tradition etched in
the history of professional rodeo and the western life style. Created
and produced by a group of volunteers who annually give of their time,
talent and effort, those chosen for the Hall of Fame may be
representatives of both the competitive and cooperative spirit of 50+
years of Miss Rodeo America.
As part of Miss Rodeo America’s 50th Anniversary celebration,
December 1, 2004 marked the first inductions into the Miss Rodeo
America Hall of Fame. Inaugural inductees were Mr. Bill Hervey from
Greensboro, NC and Mrs. Arlene Kensinger from Cheyenne, WY. Since it's inception, the Miss Rodeo America Hall of Fame has welcomed 16 inductees.
