Wrangler, Inc. has 'cowboyed up' once again to develop America's largest youth rodeo sponsorship program.
The NHSRA Wrangler Division All Star Rodeo Team is fashioned after Wrangler's Champion Pro Rodeo Team, which includes superstars like Trevor Brazile, Stran Smith, Kody Lohstroh, Guilherme Marchi, Kaycee Feild, Will Lowe, Rod Hay, Hall-of-Famer, and the late Jim Shoulders.
McKenna earned a position on the NHSRA Wrangler Division All Star Rodeo Team based on leadership qualities, academic eligibility and athletic achievements.
"We are excited to expand Wrangler's rodeo sponsorship program at the middle school level," said Jeff Chadwick, Special Events Manager for Wrangler Rodeo. "As always, it gives us a tremendous sense of pride to associate the Wrangler brand with promising young men and women. We're confident each member of the team will be an outstanding goodwill ambassador for the sport of rodeo."
Members of the Wrangler Division All Star Rodeo Team receive official competition apparel consisting of a Wrangler Twenty X shirt embroidered with the team logo and one pair of competition jeans. In addition, team members receive an official team certificate signed by President of Wrangler Jeans and Shirts, Phil McAdams.
"Wrangler's NHSRA WD sponsorship is a natural extension of our professional and collegiate rodeo programs," said Jeff Chadwick, Director of Special Events for Wrangler. "We are confident the NHSRA WD partnership will reinforce Wrangler brand loyalty with the youth market."
"The NHSRA WD owes much of its success to the support of its national sponsors," said Kent Sturman, general manager of the NHSRA WD, "and we are excited to have a prominent company like Wrangler once again step forward to help us meet the ever increasing challenges facing our young people today. Cowboys and Cowgirls can always depend on Wrangler to support the infrastructure of rodeo, and our members are thrilled to have Wrangler as a sponsor and are proud to wear their products in and out of the competition arena."
