Saturday was a night of celebration as Reva Mosley of Tarkington was crowned the rodeo queen for the Cleveland Livestock Show and Rodeo. The crowd, gathered for Saturday night’s rodeo, erupted with cheers and applause as Mosley’s name was announced. The first runner-up is Hana Lindsey, also of Tarkington.

These young ladies put in many hours of hard work in the weeks leading up to the coronation. They participated in a variety of competitions, including horsemanship, speech, interview, congeniality, personality, written test and appearance. They also competed in selling raffle tickets and battled in a social media campaign for People’s Choice Award.

Mosley won awards for People’s Choice, photogenic, speech, horsemanship, appearance and interview. Lindsey won for top raffle ticket sales, congeniality and written test.

Mosley and Lindsey are both juniors at Tarkington High School. Mosley, the daughter of Timmy Fryer, Rhonda Fryar, Kitty Van Dries and Melissa Morse, is involved with Future Farmers of America and serves as an FFA officer for the chapter and district. She also is an honor roll student. Two words that describe her are “diligent” and “resilient.”

Lindsey, the daughter of James and Dana Lindsey, also is involved with the Future Farmers of America. She is the president of her 4-H club and serves on the livestock judging team. Two words that describe her are “warm-hearted” and “friendly.”

The crown is fitted to Reva Mosley’s hat after she was proclaimed to be the new Miss Cleveland Livestock Show Rodeo Queen. The outgoing rodeo queen, Grace Williams, places the crown during Saturday night’s rodeo in Cleveland.
