Miss Rodeo Nebraska 2014 coronation this evening

A sold out Miss Rodeo Nebraska 2014 Coronation is scheduled Saturday evening at the Hampton Inn in Scottsbluff.

Gina Jespersen of Hemingford was named 2014 Rodeo Queen during the Nebraskaland Days celebration in North Platte in June. Jespersen, the daughter of Don and Joni Jespersen, is a 2008 graduate of Hemingford High School and recently earned her degree in elementary education from Black Hills State University.

She has been the "Lady in Waiting" since that time, preparing for her 2014 reign, which included a trip to the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas to watch the Miss Rodeo America pageant. Jesperson will represent Nebraska at the Miss Rodeo America competition at the NFR Finals this December.

The coronation will feature an auction and silent auction conducted by Kraupie's Real Estate and Auction. The proceeds will go toward Jesperson's expenses in the upcoming year.
