While most teenagers spend the summer lounging around the pool, soon-to-be Anderson County High School senior Avery Reynolds will be traveling across the country with her family to the National High School Finals Rodeo in Gillette, Wyoming.
Avery earned a spot in the world’s largest rodeo by winning the barrel racing and pole bending competitions at the state level. She was also named Miss Central Kentucky Regional High School Rodeo Queen.
“Rodeo is what I love,” she explained. “It’s my passion.”
