Georgia Kay

Georgia Kay is from the great state of South Carolina where she resides with her family and 3 performance horses. She currently participates in goat tie, breakaway role, pole bend, and barrels. A few of her goals are to win the all around saddle and run for Queen in one of her rodeo associations this season, along with qualifying for Nationals in 2017.

She is currently a member of her South Carolina High School Rodeo Association, Foothills Youth Rodeo Association, and National Barrel Horse Association; and competes religiously in each with 1-3 rodeos/ barrel races every weekend. 

Georgia is a 4X NBHA Youth World Championships Qualifier. At her local NBHA shows she consistently places in the 2D and was reserved champion for her NBHA Division. She has also earned the All-Around Champion Title 2 years in a row; in an association she formerly competed in last year. 

Georgia, is currently placed second in the breakaway roping, third in the barrel racing, and in the top ten in the goat tying along with pole bending for FYRA; these put her third for the All Around. She also regularly attends her NBHA State Show, FYRA and SCHSRA Finals. Not to mention, some of the larger venues like the No Bull Barrel Race and Presidents Cup, Ed Brown Championship Rodeo, IPRA and NJBRA rodeos. As if these didn't keep her busy enough she is also attends numerous state rodeos!

Not many sophomores in high school have accomplished this much in such a short time. During each eliminating round we watched Georgia rise to the challenge while continually showing her faith in Christ. Though we learned many things throughout the search from each of the applicants, it was Georgia who inspired us the most. Her ability to chase her dreams while living with Cystic Fibrosis is no easy feat. For those of you not familiar, it is a rare lung disease that makes breathing and digesting food extremely difficult. It is also one that can flare up so bad that a 2 week hospital stay is immanent; a stay that consists of  IV antibiotics, X-Rays and pills-on-pills-on-pills. 

Please, don't break out the Kleenex just yet because this doesn't get Georgia down; it only motivates her to truly live every-day and to push towards her dreams. She is proof that determination and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, can take you anywhere you want to go.
