The Philomath Frolic & Rodeo Queen serves as an ambassador of the rodeo and the entire Philomath community as she travels throughout the the State and participates in events around town. The queen term is from January 1 through December 31, and the next year’s queen is selected during the rodeo in July.
My name is Samantha Wavrin and I am thrilled to be your 2017 Philomath Frolic and Rodeo Queen.
I was raised just on the other side of the mountains in beautiful Sisters, Oregon.
I am a sophomore at Oregon State University where I am studying to get my degree in kinesiology and pre-medicine.
Although I am a transplant into the philomath community, I feel as though I already have a space among the wonderful people I’ve met through school, work, and of course, rodeo. I look forward to representing this sport and the western way of life as your 2017 queen, and am so eager to see where this year takes me.
