Student Ropes National Championship
December 03, 2008
Reese has been competing in rodeos since he was five years old and this year, he became the National High School Champion Calf Roper. Born to parents who also rodeo, he has grown up roping and riding horses.
Reese, a member of the National High School Rodeo Association, lives in Stinnett, Texas, on his family’s ranch. He competes in team roping and calf roping on his horse named 'Bill.' Reese’s parents chose TTUISD when he was in the eighth grade because they felt it would be the most beneficial program for his education. Reese said he enjoys the program because of its flexibility.
"It allows me to be able to take my work with me when I am traveling on the road to rodeos," Reese said. "I also like the communication from the teachers and the response I receive when I have a question or problem with any of my lessons."
Reese said he believes the courses he is taking through TTUISD will help further his career in college, as well as in the rodeo arena. "I feel TTUISD has helped me in my career by allowing me to have more practice time in the arena and the flexibility to travel to the rodeos," Reese said.
Reese said he plans on continuing to rope on the collegiate level after high school. Congratulations Reese!
