Cheyenne County Tumbleweed Fair July 15-24, 2022
Makyala Brossman & Kenzie Brossman
My name is Makayla Brossman and I am your 2022 Cheyenne County Tumbleweed Fair & Rodeo Queen. My parents are Kurt and Marcy Brossman and I have two siblings, Kenzie and Kooper. This fall I will be a Senior at Cheyenne Wells High School. The sports I participate in are volleyball, cheerleading, and track. I am also a member of NHS, FBLA, and FFA. Outside of school I am a member of the Old Wells 4-H club. I have been in 4-H for 12 years and I am also the president for both my club and the 4-H council. 4-H has given me great leadership opportunities and many life skills. I will always be thankful for this program shaping me into who I am today. I have been given the opportunity to compete at the state level in FFA for horse judging; FBLA for marketing and website design; and 4-H for numerous indoor projects, horse, shotgun, and the master showmanship. As the 2022 Queen I want to continue to represent Cheyenne County and be an advocate for agriculture. I plan to represent my county with poise, horsemanship, and respect. I am also very passionate about agriculture so I intend to continue educating others about what agriculture is and how much it benefits us. It has been a humbling experience serving alongside my sister Kenzie, the 2022 Princess. I want to thank everyone for their support during my reign and I want to encourage you all to be an AGvocate!
Hello! My name is Kenzie Brossman, and I am thrilled to serve as your 2022 Cheyenne County Tumbleweed Fair and Rodeo Princess. I am the 15 year old daughter of Kurt and Marcy Brossman and have two siblings; Makayla and Kooper. I will be going into my Sophomore year at Cheyenne Wells High School this fall and will be participating in volleyball, basketball, track, FBLA, and FFA. This was my 10th year taking part in the 4-H program. I am currently the Vice President of the Old Wells 4-H club and the Cheyenne County 4-H Council. This year in 4-H I took market beef, horse, breeding and market goat, market swine, and baking. I have learned many leadership skills throughout my years in 4-H and in all the school activities I have participated in. When I am not busy with school and 4-H I like participating in various rodeos. My favorite event to compete in is breakaway. I will use the knowledge and experience I have gained through participation in multiple disciplines of state competitions to navigate being an advocate of the sport of rodeo and agriculture. I am very honored to be representing Cheyenne County as the 2022 Princess and can’t wait to see you all at the fair this year!
2022 Parade Marshal
Bill and Sandie Roth
Bill Roth was born in Ellinwood, Kansas on July 21, 1941 to Bob and Mary Roth. He is the third of six children. His siblings are Darlene, Janet, Jack, Alan and Greg. His family moved to Cheyenne Wells in 1951. Bill attended Sacred Heart Catholic school through 8th grade. Then he and his siblings transferred to the Arapahoe school when his family moved to the farm northeast of Cheyenne Wells.
Sandie was born on June 15, 1942 in Burlington, Colorado to Wendell and Ruth Hull. She is the oldest of three children. Her siblings are Pattie and W.W. Sandie spent her entire childhood on the 5 Heart ranch south of Arapahoe and attended all 12 years of school at the Arapahoe school.
Bill and Sandie started dating when they were seniors, graduating in 1960. They were married on September 9, 1961. (The dirt was blowing!!) They celebrated 60 years of marriage in 2021.
Bill worked for Larsen’s, first in the abstract office and then the lumber yard until they took a huge leap of faith and purchased the Leo Mahlberg farm south of Cheyenne Wells. He also worked in the oilfield as a pumper for Mull Drilling for about seven years while trying to get the farm
established. Bill and Sandie have four children: Tami (Ray) Brown, Cassa (Rick) Haney, Craig (Julie) Roth and Tracy (Bryce) Walker. They have 12 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.
Sandie worked at two local clothing stores, spent 12 years at the school, and then part time at Prairie in Bloom flower shop. Bill continued to farm and ranch through the good and not so good years but still loves it!! They are happy our son, Craig, chose to follow in his father’s footsteps and has gradually taken on more and more of the responsibilities.
Their life has been a busy blur of enjoying four kids activities, grandkids activities and now even great-grand kids activities! They still enjoy cheering on the kids in the community too!
Bill and Sandie moved to town in 1998 and Craig and his family moved to the farm. “God has blessed us abundantly, carrying us through all life’s ups and downs. Our greatest gift God has given us is our family, followed by good friends and living in this small, close-knit community, where we care about each other. We feel unworthy and humbled by the honor of being chosen as the 2022 Cheyenne County Tumbleweed Fair Parade Marshal’s. Thank you so much. May God continue to bless our community and draw us closer and closer to Him,” Bill and Sandie said.
