Hey y’all! I’m Monica Stewart and I am your 2018 Miss ORA! I am currently in school at Missouri State University and in progress for my Ag Communications degree. My main interest has always been steered towards the educating and informing of the people for the industry I love so dearly, putting those things together into one is my main interest. My future goals after graduating includes working with media and Ag marketing. I have my personal interview show I took on as my own project called “Saddle Up Ozarks” that I edit, video, and sit to speak with many Ag related and horse related subjects across the Ozarks to promote the horse industry to the general public. My passion is to educate the public of the western and horse lifestyle in a fun and interesting way.
I am from Marshfield, Missouri and proud to say that I am from the Ozarks. I have been involved in horses my whole life since I was a child and the passion has grown bigger as I continue to learn in the sport. You usually will find me at rodeos, a reining show, or cow horse show as those are what my biggest hobbies consist of.
During my reign I plan to practice my skills on becoming stronger in communication and improve my knowledge in public speaking and promotion to the public of the western industry. I am extremely grateful for this opportunity and feel extremely blessed for this association to help me on my journey. I cannot wait to see what the future holds this year!
I encourage ya'll to join me this year as I will be sharing all of my adventures here and letting you see what I'm up to! I also plan to share the results of each rodeo and speaking with the winners to get exclusive interviews with the contestants after their runs each night. So stay tuned for videos this season to go along with my blog!
Till next time cowboys and cowgirls!
Miss ORA 2018
Hello I’m Jacci Gregory, the 2018 Miss Teen Ozark Rodeo Association! I began my journey with horses when I was only nine years old. I started showing horses in 4-H and quickly became interested in rodeo. While I started to gain interest in rodeo I continued playing softball, showing pigs, chickens, and my horses.
I won my first queen pageant in 2015 as the Greencastle Rodeo Junior queen. The following year I became the Mark Twain Lake Rodeo Junior Queen. That fall I competed for Miss Teen Rodeo Missouri 2017 and spent the next year in 2017 traveling in and out of Missouri representing the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and Missouri.
I am excited to travel with the Ozark Rodeo Association, and be their official representative for this year!
