Presenting 2016 Lehi Round-Up Royalty



The Lehi Round-Up royalty is the “face” of the Lehi Round-Up Rodeo. They represent our rodeo at various rodeos, parades, and other public events, and provide information about the history of our rodeo, animal welfare, the City of Lehi, and any other Lehi Round-Up related topics.

The 2016 royalty was chosen from a field of five contestants.  After a full day of interviews, modeling, impromptu speeches, and horsemanship competition, three highly qualified ladies were chosen.

McKenna Hales from Morgan, Utah, is Miss Lehi Round-Up Rodeo 2016. She is the daughter of Ron and Becky Hales. McKenna is a graduate of Morgan High School where she was active in many organizations. She was also active in high school rodeo, where she competed and won many titles in queening, pole bending, and cow-cutting. In 2014 she was selected as the Silver State International Rodeo Queen. McKenna is currently a student at Brigham Young University, majoring in Nursing. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking, camping, skiing, and snowmobiling.  She is honored to be representing the Lehi Round-Up Rodeo.

Kassadee Jo Jones, daughter of Darin and Kellie Jo Jones, was selected as the first attendant.  Kassadee Jo is a native of Lehi and has been involved with the Lehi Round-Up Celebration her entire life. She is currently a junior at Lehi High School where she is active in FFA, participates with the Lehi Longhorn Rodeo Team, and has deemed herself the “cupcake queen.” She loves everything to do with horses and the Lehi Round-Up Rodeo and Celebration. In her spare time she enjoys playing the piano, four-wheeling in West Canyon, and of course, making cupcakes.  Kassadee Jo invites you to make the Lehi Round-Up Rodeo your family tradition.

Sydney McManus is the daughter of Ted and Donna McManus. She will represent the rodeo as the second attendant. Sydney is from Heber, Utah, and is currently an Elementary Education major at the University of Utah. She has been active in both English and Western disciplines, including hunter jumpers and trail riding.
