Jaci Brown

2018 XIT Rodeo Queen

Jaci Brown is the 17-year old daughter of Billy and Krista Brown, and she has a younger sister, Brendi. Jaci is currently a senior at Stratford High School. She’s very active in her 4-H club and FFA Chapter. She is serving as a State 4-H Livestock Ambassador and FFA Chapter President for the third year. Jaci is president of her 4-H club and the Amarillo District FFA Sentinel.  She had the honor of receiving her Lone Star Degree in FFA and the Gold Star Award in 4-H this year. She also serves as a junior director for the Southwest Aberdeen Breeders Association, American Aberdeen Junior Association, and the Texas Quarter Horse Youth Association. She enjoys showing heifers and horses. In January 2017, Jaci won Grand Champion Cow/Calf pair in the junior show at the National Western Stock Show with a calf that she bred and raised. She has also had the honor of serving as the American Lowline Queen from 2016-2017. Also, Jaci is an active member of the First United Methodist Church Youth Group. She is also a member of the National Honor Society since her May 2018 induction. Jaci judges horses in 4-H and FFA. She, along with her team qualified and competed at State 4-H Roundup in College Station in both Horse Judging and Livestock Skill-a-thon the past three years. Being crowned the 2018 XIT Rodeo Queen has been a dream of Jaci’s for as long as she can remember and she is excited to carry on the traditions of the XIT rodeo. Jaci’s main queen horse is a 7 year old grey gelding named Chapo that she has had for 5 years. She has three other horses that each have their role in the XIT festivities. After high school, Jaci plans to attend Texas Tech University and major in Animal Science. The most important thing to Jaci is to be a good role model to the younger kids in the industry and to show them to never give up on their dreams.
