Congratulations to Makenzie Matthews!! On July, 28th 2018 she was crowned your 2019 Miss Thunder Mountain Pro Rodeo Queen! Kenzie was born in Longview Washington although she grew up in the quaint town of Grays River, Washington. She attended Naselle Grays River Valley School from kindergarten until she graduated where she was a 4-H member for 13 years and continues to volunteer to this day. Although she entered in other categories at the fair her equine project was always her favorite. She has had an extreme passion for horses from a young age. Kenzie plans to attend as many parades, rodeos, community facilities and events as possible! She plans to promote the western way of life and more specifically, our fantastic Thunder Mountain Rodeo. Here is to the friends to come, the knowledge that will be gained, and the memories to come as she fulfills her duties as Queen Kenzie. Her horse Chey and she hope to see you on their journey as she proudly represents the Thunder Mountain Pro Rodeo. Cowlitz County Thunder Mountain Rodeo takes place July 25th-27th at the Cowlitz County Fair and she hopes to see you there!
