2018 Potter Valley Rodeo Queen

Karlie Johnson

I would like to begin with thanking all of my sponsors and supporters that helped me in earning the title of 2018 Potter Valley rodeo queen. It has been a true honor to represent the Potter Valley community and the Spring Festival and Rodeo as its queen. During my time as queen, I was fortunate enough to travel to several rodeos throughout Lake and Mendocino counties. At each one, I met many new people and was privileged to be an ambassador for the Potter Valley Rodeo. Many things have changed in my life since graduating high school.

I am currently working as an EMT with Falck Ambulance Company and attending Santa Rosa Junior College, finishing up my prerequisites for nursing school. At the end of the 2020 spring semester, I will be applying at Sonoma State’s nursing program where I will obtain a Bachelor’s degree in nursing. The opportunity to represent the community of Potter Valley as the 2018 rodeo queen taught me many important skills and gave me many memories I will cherish. I look forward to passing the crown and the amazing experience on to our new queen. I wish everyone a happy and safe Memorial Day Weekend!
