Cassidy Black is Miss Rodeo Utah 2016

Every little girl, at one point in her life, wants to feel like a princess. Cassidy Black experienced that moment on the evening of July 24, 2015. That was when she was announced as Miss Rodeo Utah 2016 — a title she's dreamed of winning since she was a small girl. Black, a native of Coalville, was announced as the winner of the weeklong pageant in front of a sold-out crowd at the Ogden Pioneer Days Rodeo, which has been the exclusive host rodeo of the Miss Rodeo Utah pageant for 60 years. Black, the daughter of Glen and Gena Black, also won the appearance and horsemanship categories of the competition, which is an affiliate of the Miss Rodeo America pageant. Black is a student at Weber State University, studying professional sales. Black, whose sequin shirt sparkled under the Ogden Pioneer Stadium spotlights when she won the golden crown, will represent Utah at the Miss Rodeo America pageant in December. Black is also a second-generation Miss Rodeo Utah. Her mother won the competition in 1981. See a KSL-TV story on Cassidy's big win 34 years after her mother, Gena, a member of the Ogden Pioneer Days organizing committee, also won the crown.
