Hailey Tweedy ~ Miss Teen Rodeo Iowa 2020
Hailey Tweedy is the 16 year old daughter of Jeremy & Jamie Tweedy of Argyle. She is a junior at Central Lee High School where she is active in National Honor Society, dance, track, science club, student council, FFA, 4H, and showing at local saddle club shows. Throughout high school Hailey has been a two time state shuttle hurdle qualifier, has won awards in FFA for public speaking, and has won numerous awards through 4H.
Hailey's future plans are to attend Iowa State University to study veterinary medicine with an emphasis on equine dentistry.
Hailey was named Miss Teen Wapello Rodeo in 2017 and was the Miss Junior Rodeo Iowa in 2016. She has grown up with a love for horses and rodeo, training her first barrel pony, Blue Jeans, when she was only 8 years old and winning her first belt buckle with that pony. Since then, she has tried other disciplines and has found a love for reining. With her new horse, Evie, she plans to continue to compete in reining.
Hailey is excited to begin her year as Miss Teen Rodeo Iowa 2020. She wants to advocate for young women in rodeo and encourage them to participate. She hopes that she can inspire young girls to develop a love for rodeo and see the important connection that it holds to our agricultural world.
