Rodeo Club begins again

Logan Thumann, Staff Film/Writer

West’s Rodeo Club is a group of like-minded people who share the same love for rodeo and the meetings are held in the history hall.

Magnolia West’s premier teacher, Mr. Dustin Hutchinson, saw the need for a Rodeo Club for students who are interested in the circuit events held around Magnolia and Montgomery County. This need began last year when in its trial stages, the club began but was quickly rerouted due administration’s difficult decision to cancel West Hour last school year.

This year the club is in its early stages, and with the Administration’s full support of West Hour, has returned for a trial run, students are finding the re-establishment of the club something they would like to become a part of while attending school.

This group of students shares the same love for rodeo, along with FFA events, students share results of events from the past, discuss ways to perform in their event for a better score or even just ask for advice on how to begin the process.

Participates are usually entered in timed events and stay involved in the heavy rodeo scene around Magnolia and throughout the Grimes, Waller, and Montgomery County areas.

The participation is “in an effort to get better at their skill and be awarded scholarships for future purposes,” Hutchinson said.
