Queen duties • Ashleigh Nelson, Clearwater rodeo queen, has been promoting the local rodeo at area events.

In 2014, a little girl was sitting in the crowd at the Clearwater Rodeo. She watched as the new Miss Clearwater Rodeo, McKenzie Brozek, circled the arena.

The young girl thought, "Man, I want to be like her someday: ride a horse, carry a flag, and dress all pretty."

Five years later, Ashleigh Nelson's dream has come true.

On Friday, June 28, at the 52nd annual Clearwater Rodeo, Nelson was crowned queen.

Nelson 16, of Tilden, will be a junior at Elkhorn Valley Schools. Her parents are Gary and Dawn Nelson. Nelson is involved in FFA, FBLA, FCCLA, basketball and is a teacher's aid.
