Today I’m bringing you a little piece of alumni pride. During my time at Iowa State University, I spent a lot of my time working with other members of the ISU Rodeo Club to produce our home college rodeo, the Cyclone Stampede. For anyone who doesn’t know, Iowa State has the last student-run rodeo in the nation. That’s right – an all student committee taking care of everything from the stock contractor to the arena authorization.
I caught up with Erin Lagone, this year’s chair of the Cyclone Stampede committee, on what it’s like to be in her shoes and oversee other students putting on their own production. For my local readers, this year’s Cyclone Stampede goes on THIS WEEKEND. I’ll be there – stop out, watch some rodeo and support a college tradition.
Describe what you do on the committee.
