Madelaine Mills is the proud daughter of Randy and Debbie Mills. The 23 year-old is a graduate of West Texas A&M University with a Bachelor of Science in Mass Communication, emphasizing in Broadcast Journalism and Advertising & Public Relations. She plans to obtain a Master’s Degree in Marketing and pursue a career in the western industry or a rodeo organization, while also working towards entrepreneurial dreams.
With a strong belief in sharing her love for the sport of rodeo and the unique western lifestyle, Mills credits participating in 4H and FFA as the start, holding officer positions and building an appreciation for agriculture. Passionate about youth rodeo, she served on the National Little Britches Rodeo Association (NLBRA) Youth Board in 2011 and 2012. Mills was honored to serve as the 2012 National Little Britches Rodeo Association Queen and continues to enjoy competing in breakaway, team roping, and barrel racing.
The iconic turquoise tiara worn by Miss Rodeo Colorado continues to represent the rich western traditions of our Rocky Mountain State and America. With a servant’s heart, Mills is blessed to carry on the legacy of cowgirl attitude, pioneer spirit, and an American brand of courage that every Miss Rodeo Colorado has exemplified. Aiming to encourage and grow others, she is excited to promote the Greeley Stampede and all that rodeo embodies with today’s youngest buckaroos to yesterday’s Greatest Generation.
“Hold yourself to a standard of grace, not perfection.”
