MISS GILROY RODEO 2018: Jade Katen-Ynzunza

The very first Miss Gilroy Rodeo

Occupation/Degree: Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Marketing

Jade's Favorite Memory from her Reign: Meeting lots of little girls who look  up to me is a really amazing experience!


"As Miss Gilroy Rodeo 2018, Jade promoted the Gilroy Rodeo every step of the way on its journey to return to the community in August 2018. She also served as a role model for the small town values of hard work and integrity. As a dedicated rodeo ambassador, Jade was honored to share her enthusiasm and knowledge of rodeo and its athletes, both human and animal, with as many people as possible. It is Jade’s hope that one day Gilroy will not only be known for its garlic but also its annual community rodeo."
