Katie Barger
On January 16, 2011, Katie Barger earned the prestigious honor of becoming Miss Rodeo USA 2011 during the fourth and final round of the International Finals Rodeo in Oklahoma City. She wrote herself down in history as the very first young lady from Arkansas to ever win the title as well as the first young lady representing the Pawnee Bill Memorial Rodeo in Pawnee, Oklahoma. "I am honored to be the new Miss Rodeo USA and am looking forward to promoting the sport that I love so much. I am excited to get to travel all over the United States and Canada sharing my platform "Give a Smile".
Katie is the 20-year-old daughter of Kenneth and Kristie Barger and has one twin brother, Keaton.
Katie was working toward her Associate of Health Sciences Degree at Arkansas State University in Heber Springs. She plans on finishing her degree there after her reign as Miss Rodeo USA and then transfer to the University of Central Arkansas to begin the Nurse Practitioner Program and specialize in pediatrics.
Raised in the small country town of Quitman, Arkansas, Katie is no newcomer to the horse industry. She began competing in rodeos as soon as she conquered a walk and a trot at age 4. Over the years, Katie continued to rodeo in various associations such as the Arkansas Teenage Rodeo Association, the Arkansas Cowboys Association, the Central Arkansas Little Britches Rodeo Association, and eventually made her way up to the Arkansas High School Rodeo Association where she competed for all four years. She competed in barrel racing, goat tying, and pole bending; however, her favorite event was goat tying.
Katie considers herself very blessed to have grown up around rodeo, which taught her the value of hard work, responsibility, respect, loyalty, and attitude. Rodeo also allowed Katie to take part in events such as "Toys for Tots" and to even visit Arkansas Children's Hospital. It was at this hospital that Katie's platform was inspired when a patient asked Katie, 'Are you an angel?' With a simple smile, Katie impacted that little boy in a huge way, and he impacted her as well. Her platform "Give a Smile" encourages everyone to use his or her smiles.
Katie would like to thank all of her sponsors and supporters for all their generosity and support. "Without all of you I would not have made it this far, and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I'm ready to hit the road and to share each part of this amazing journey as Miss Rodeo USA with you."
God Bless, Katie Barger J
