Miss Rodeo Nebraska 2018 – Kristin Kohmetscher

Kristin Kohmetscher calls Lawrence, Nebraska home and is the daughter of Duane and the late Laurie Kohmetscher.

Kristin became the first Miss Teen Rodeo Nebraska 2018 to win Miss Rodeo Nebraska when she captured the title along with the horsemanship, appearance, written test, speech and personality categories following four days of competition.

“I want to use the time God has given me to help others realize their worth and potential. I believe each individual possesses a unique set of talents and passions that should be supported and utilized,” Kristin said.

She believes her reign as Miss Rodeo Nebraska will allow her to share her passion for rodeo, the western way of life and agriculture with people from all walks of life.

Kristin recently achieved another lifelong dream on May 5 when she graduated with her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Iowa State University. She recently started working at a rural mixed animal clinic providing veterinary care to South Central Nebraska and North Central Kansas. Kristin is excited to use her knowledge to provide care for the animal athletes of rodeo in the years to come.

Many of her extracurricular activities lent themselves to her field of study. She was an officer for the student chapters of both the American Association of Equine Practitioners and the American Association of Bovine Practitioners.

Kristin also enjoys playing intramural sports, volunteering for her county fair, riding horses, giving riding lessons, roping, spending time on her family’s ranch, reading, drawing and anything musical. (Image by KC Creations Photography, Burwell, NE)

Miss Teen Rodeo Nebraska 2018 – Rebel Sjeklocha

Rebel Sjeklocha is Miss Teen Rodeo Nebraska 2018.

The Hayes Center woman was crowned June 13, 2018 at the North Platte Community Playhouse in North Platte. She won the personality, speech, written test and appearance categories of the pageant.

It was an exciting moment for Sjeklocha, 17, who came in first-runner up at the pageant in 2016 and 2017.

“The experience taught me to never give up on my goals,” Sjeklocha said. “If your heart truly longs for something, keep working hard to obtain that goal.”

Sjeklocha is the daughter of Rusty and Susan Sjeklocha. She graduated from Maywood High School in May and has plans to attend the University of Nebraska–Lincoln to study Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Communications in the fall.

Rebel would like to eventually go to law school and open a practice in a rural area. Her dream is to help farmers and ranchers pass on their livelihoods to the next generation as well as defend the natural resources that are vital to their operations. (Photo courtesy of George Hipple Photography)
