My name is Hayden McKinnon, I have participated in the Roots N’ Boots PRCA Youth Committee for the past two years. Prior to being a member of the youth committee, I attended Roots N’ Boots Queen Creek PRCA Rodeo and family events as a fan of Rodeo. 

What is Roots N’ Boots Youth Committee? We are an organized group of youth with rodeo involvement that volunteers our time planning, executing and making a difference in our community equestrian events. 

My experience thus far has given me great opportunities to learn and grow as an individual. Over the past two years I have had the opportunity to participate in many events such as PRCA rodeos across the state, the PRCA Convention in Las Vegas, NV, local “Town of Queen Creek” events, adaptive needs programs, as well as a countdown video for our very own “Roots N’ Boots PRCA Rodeo.”

 During these events I was able to serve my community, put forth my skills while continuing to learn, and strengthen myself individually.  I feel privileged to be part of this Youth Committee and would encourage others just like myself to participate.
