NEIL DRAKE MEMORIAL AWARD

The family of Neil Drake, an alumni of the Nebraska High School Rodeo Association, has a new scholarship opportunity that is available to one lucky Cowgirl or Cowboy for the 2019-2020 rodeo season.  The winner will have all of their entry fees paid for the 2019-2020 rodeo season!

Neil loved rodeo and was passionate about bareback riding and everything about rodeo life.  However, due to financial reason, Neil was not able to rodeo as much as he would have liked.  Neil passed away in 2014 from an undiagnosed rare genetic disorder.

In memory of Broc Cresta, his family and friends have established the Broc Cresta Memorial Scholarship Fund. Broc’s undeniable sound character, determination and commitment in and out of the arena resulted in an unforgettable and life-long impact on others. Because of this, the Scholarship Fund was created to continue to impact the lives of young students across the country. We would like to encourage all High School Seniors with plans on completing further education to apply for a Broc Cresta Memorial Scholarship.

To be eligible for a Broc Cresta Memorial Scholarship, high school seniors must be an active member in a rodeo or roping association, FFA and/or 4H. They must also plan to continue their education through a university, college and/or technical trade school. Student selection will be based on continued education goals, content of the letters of recommendation, and the student’s personal statement. The Scholarship is a nationwide Scholarship, and applicants do not have to reside in California to be considered. 

Please encourage your students to visit www.broccrestamemorial.com/scholarship to learn more, download an application or apply online. The Scholarship application deadline is March 31st. We look forward to announcing the 2019 Scholarship Recipients at the Memorial Roping on April 16th, in Cottonwood, California.
