2022 Larimer County & PRCA Rodeo Queen
Hello everyone! My name is Morgan Crouse. I am 19 years old; I am the daughter of Jay and Dawn Crouse, and I have an older sister named Valerie. I was born and raised right here in Fort Collins Colorado!
I am currently a sophomore at Front Range Community College studying Surgical Technology. After graduating I plan on a career in Interventional Radiology, working at one of our local hospitals.
I just completed my 11th Larimer County Fair and my final year in the Larimer County 4-H program with the Desperados 4-H Club. The relationships I have gained through this program are priceless and will last me a lifetime. The spring of 2021 I started riding my horse “Smart Lil Chilli Pepper”, better known as Pepper. He is a friendly 16-year-old quarter horse who loves to work cows and run hot laps! Although I have not been riding him long, we have grown into an incredible team!
In my upcoming year, I look forward to traveling across Colorado to represent this great county and our western heritage. I am excited to meet all of you and to inspire future generations.
I am grateful to be the 2022 Larimer County & PRCA Rodeo Queen!
