I am the daughter of Jason and Dana Pachner. I am a sophmore at Akron High School. I participate in volleyball, basketball and track. I am an active member of the Akron FFA and FBLA chapters. I enjoy riding my horse, painting, and helping my family out on the farm. I am so blessed to serve as the 2017 Eastern Colorado Roundup Queen and I can't wait to see you at the county fair.
In August, I was given the honor of being the 2017 Eastern Colorado Round-Up Queen. Along with that honor, comes many opportunities. One of them is volunteering at the National Western Stock Show which I did on January 10th. In all honesty, I had no idea what to expect, but the other volunteers were very friendly and helped to ease my confusion.
The volunteers would station me at different places such as the south entrance, the event center, and the art gallery; my job was to be friendly and greet people. As visitors walked by, I would welcome them to the National Western Stock Show.
I was able to speak to people of all walks of life and enjoyed the stories and experiences they shared with me. My favorite people to talk to were definitely the kids. They would tell me about the animals they saw, the hat they just got, or how they want to be cowgirls and cowboys when they grow up. I took pictures with them, hugged them, and they left my heart warmed.
I also helped out at the PBR that evening. I checked tickets and handed out t-shirts to lucky winners. I enjoyed my time at the Stock Show, and it is definitely an experience I will remember all of my life. I am truly blessed to represent Washington County as the ECR Queen, and I look forward to future opportunities to promote our own Eastern Colorado Round-Up.
