My name is Clara Churchill and I am the 2015 Miss U.P. Rodeo Queen. I am 19 years old and the only child of Mark and Jill Churchill. I graduated from Negaunee High School in 2014 and now I am a sophomore at Northern Michigan University where I am studying biology. I am also on the Cross Country and Track and Field teams and compete in mid distance events. I have been riding horses ever since I was 5 years old. My horse Pretty Miss Lilly and I have been competing in both speed and pleasure events through the Upper Peninsula Horseman’s Association for many years. I am also a member of the Posse 4-H club. Becoming Miss U.P. Rodeo has always been a huge goal of mine. I started off as the 2009 Great Lakes Rodeo Princess then the 2013 Great Lakes Rodeo Queen. Now that I am the 2015 Miss U.P. Rodeo Queen I couldn’t be happier!
