Kirby Blankenship

My name is Kirby Blankenship, and I am from Lampasas, Texas.  I am from a rural background and have been involved in farming and ranching my entire life. I am currently a freshman attending Weatherford College in Weatherford, Texas where I am on the rodeo team. Currently I am sitting first place in the Southwest Region. When I graduate from Weatherford College, my plan is to attend Tarleton State University where I will compete on the rodeo team and finish my degree in Ag Business. After I earn my degree, I want to get a job in ag banking where I can have the ability to maintain a job while also being able to rodeo on the side.
