Dream Gig

Since graduating last spring Kristin Kohmetscher has put her veterinary career on the back burner to fulfill her duties as Miss Rodeo Nebraska. She will complete her responsibilities in January, year of representing the state and promoting rodeo through speaking engagements and appearances inside the ring. “I never truly knew how great it would be,” Kohmetscher said. “It was through this opportunity that I saw the ocean for the first time and rode horseback with the Oregon governor. Any time I was asked to carry the American flag before the rodeo was special to me. It has been a phenomenal year.”
