Jerian Ashley crowned 2011 Tonasket Rodeo Queen

TONASKET – Jerian Ashley was crowned the 2011 Tonasket Rodeo Queen at the coronation ceremony held on Saturday, Oct. 23 in the Tonasket Eagles.

Ashley, a senior at Tonasket High School, was chosen over fellow THS senior Cortney Ingle and was crowned by outgoing Queen Taylor Ayers, another THS senior.

“It’s amazing, I’m speechless and very, very happy,” Ashley said after being crowned. “I hope everything goes smoothly while I’m queen.”

This was Ashley’s second year trying to be the Tonasket Rodeo Queen and her fifth time trying for a royalty title. Two years ago, she competed to be Okanogan County Fair Queen and Okanogan County Junior Rodeo Queen, a crown she sought three years ago as well.

The more I watch the last minute ads, the more I am convinced we need to be strong and reject all current office holders. The lies and distortions in those ads should be all the evidence we need of their total lack of integrity.
