Clark named to rodeo organization

Leaders of the National High School Rodeo Association (NHSRA), the oldest youth rodeo organization in America, appointed John Marvin Clark of Pecos to the Wrangler High School All Star Rodeo Team, the first-ever corporate-sponsored youth rodeo team.

The Wrangler High School All Star Rodeo Team is fashioned after Wrangler's Champion Pro Rodeo Team, which includes superstars like Ty Murray, Joe Beaver, Dan Mortensen, Charmayne James and Hall-of-Famer Jim Shoulders.

Clark earned a position on the Wrangler High School All Star Rodeo Team based on leadership qualities, academic eligibility and athletic achievements.

"We are excited to again this year expand Wrangler's rodeo sponsorship program at the high school level," said Karl Stressman, special events manager for Wrangler Rodeo. "As always, it gives us a tremendous sense of pride to associate the Wrangler brand with promising young men and women. We're confident each member of the team will be an outstanding goodwill ambassador for the sport of rodeo."

Members of the Wrangler High School All Star Rodeo Team receive official competition apparel consisting of Wrangler Twenty X shirts embroidered with the team logo and two pairs of competition jeans. In addition, team members receive an official team certificate signed by rodeo greats Jim Shoulders and Ty Murray.

"Wranglers NHSRA sponsorship is a natural extension of our professional and collegiate rodeo programs," said Louis Russo, director of Western Wear Marketing for Wrangler. "We are confident the NHSRA partnership will reinforce Wrangler brand loyalty with the youth market."

"The NHSRA owes much of its success to the support of its national sponsors," said Kent Sturman, general manager of the NHSRA, "and we are excited to have a prominent company like Wrangler once again step forward to help us meet the ever increasing challenges facing our young people today. Cowboys can always depend on Wrangler to support the infrastructure of rodeo, and our members are thrilled to have Wrangler as a sponsor and are proud to wear their products in and out of the competition arena."
