““We are extremely proud of April for her representation during the Miss Rodeo USA Pageant and we are very fortunate to have her as our ambassador promoting our rodeo,” said Limestone County Sheriff Mike Blakely. “She represented Alabama with great class and dignity and will serve as a great role model for young people as they enter our pageant during our May rodeo.”
Brown was awarded the Horsemanship Award and also had the highest marks on the Written Test, which covers a variety of topics, including current events and promoting the history and sport of rodeo.
