Miss Rodeo Nebraska 2017 – Laramie Schlichtemeier

Laramie Schlichtemeier is Miss Rodeo Nebraska 2017.

The Ogallala woman considers herself blessed to have grown up in a family that enjoys rodeo, agriculture and the great outdoors. She loves anything that has to do with horses, hunting, fishing or any other adventure her home state offers.

Laramie graduated from Chadron State College in 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration and options in Agri-Business and Marketing.

She plans to use her degree to pursue a career that will have a positive impact on farmers, ranchers and others who have chosen what she believes to be one of the most important career fields in the world – agriculture.

Laramie wants to help expand and further develop the dynamic and crucial industry for future generations.

With her queen title, Laramie plans to visit schools across the state promoting her platform, “BAM” (Banning Alcohol for Minors) and her slogan, “Rope Your Dreams.”

Laramie hopes her influence will encourage youth to make good decisions and will encourage the pursuit of dreams – no matter how big they may seem. (Photo courtesy of MaKenzi’s Photography) 

Miss Teen Rodeo Nebraska 2017 – Molly Paxton

Molly Paxton is Miss Teen Rodeo Nebraska 2017.

Paxton, 15, is from Tryon, but currently attends Mullen High School. After graduation, she plans to join the U.S. Navy and eventually go into the medical field.

Until then, she is an active member of her school’s FCCLA chapter. She competes in volleyball, basketball, track, rodeo and speech and is a member of both the All ‘A’ Honor Club and the High Ability Learner’s club.

Paxton is the president of the Country Clover 4-H Club, serves as a junior leader for horse 4-H and plays several instruments, including the guitar, piano, flute, alto saxophone and banjo. One of her favorite pastimes is singing in talent shows.

Paxton was crowned June 14 at the North Platte Community Playhouse in North Platte after winning the horsemanship, appearance and photogenic categories of the pageant.

Of her reign, Paxton says, “My life mission is to always honor and value the opportunity of being raised in an environment that promotes the western way of living. I hope to always bring and promote kindness, positivity and living life to the fullest by making every day better than the day before.”

Her parents are Dusty and Mindy Paxton, of Tryon. (Photo courtesy of George Hipple Photography)
