Lincoln County Fair and Rodeo Queen

Lincoln County Fair and Rodeo Queen Jireh Griffin

Miss Jireh Griffin is the 2017-2018 Lincoln County Fair and Rodeo Queen.

Jireh is a Junior at the Davenport High School. She has a full load this year taking 3 AP classes to earn college credits. She enjoys FFA, cheerleading and her favorite sport is track. On top of school, and her devotion to being the Lincoln County Fair and Rodeo Queen, Jireh also finds time to work at the Stockland Livestock Auction and enjoys showing cattle.  Her favorite pass time is art of all mediums (her favorite being charcoal). Her aspirations are to pursue physical therapy as well as horse training.

Jireh’s family moved to Davenport in 2012 from Hunters WA where she got her first taste of 4-H and what it was to have a project animal. After moving to Davenport she realized she wanted to do more and set her sights on being a champion showman. Over several years of 4-H she has entered sewing projects, baked goods and several styles of art in the fair. She has shown poultry, rabbits, steers and even a cow and calf pair. She has won several grand champion ribbons, participated in round robin and judging classes and had some of her art chosen to move on to the Spokane Interstate Fair.

Jireh entered her first rodeo here in Davenport riding steers.   Since then she has ridden steers, junior bulls, participated in wild pony races and has competed in cow riding and barrel racing at the EWJRA rodeos.

Jireh’s parents are Dave and Dory and she has three brothers, Apollos (works at Rainier Seed), Jakin (9th grader) and Titus (5th Grader). The horses working with her this year are Teah and Paladine Regalo.

Along with her family, she would like to send out a huge thank you to team S.W.A.T. and her entire community as people have surrounded, helped, encouraged and been there for her every step of the way.

Jireh is honored to be the Lincoln County Fair and Rodeo Queen and would like to see the fair and rodeo grow and prosper. She encourages everyone to enter something in our fair and participate in the rodeo if possible.
