This morning 90 kindergartners participated in the 40th annual Quail Dobbs Legacy Coahoma Kindergarten Rodeo that took place at Coahoma Elementary School this morning.
Coahoma Junior High Assistant Principal Coley Dobbs, son of ProRodeo Hall of Famer Quail Dobbs, was in attendance to watch the festivities. When asked how he felt about the event going on for so long, he stated that It's fantastic because there are multi-generational families who have participated in the event.
"It really is [a legacy]," said Dobbs. "We've had people who've wanted to have their kids out here [at Coahoma ISD] just for the Kindergarten Rodeo, so it's a big thing."
Students were joined by Professional Rodeo Announcer Ben Clements and his sister Brandi who ran the sound board, Professional Rodeo Clown Jim Bob Fellers, and country western singer and Coahoma High School Alum Jody Nix. The 2017 Miss Rodeo Texas, Tianti Carter, and Miss Rodeo Texas Princess, Bailey Wright, were also in attendance at the event to cheer on the participants, as well as students from the Howard College Rodeo team.
