Kellie Stockton is the 24-year-old daughter of Jeff and Rebecca Stockton. She grew up with her older brother on a small family ranch in Beulah, Colorado. As a second-generation cowgirl, the love of horses was natural for her and grew into a life-long passion. That passion led her to show and compete in local saddle clubs and the National Little Britches Rodeo Association in both barrel racing and pole bending. Kellie also has a strong passion for education and graduated from Colorado State University- Pueblo in the Spring of 2018 with a Bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies with an emphasis in Elementary Education and endorsements to teach History. She hopes to work as a teacher in a rural school district and to continue working to become a professional barrel racer. Kellie will use her skills as an educator and her love for rodeo to help inspire youth and educate the public about agriculture and rodeo.
Kellie’s hobbies include archery, hunting, fishing, reading, learning American Sign Language, and drawing.
