|“Helping Youth Today So That The Sport Of Rodeo And Agriculture Can Grow Tomorrow.”
The TYRA has always understood that education is vital to the American agriculture industry. So an innovative TYRA Executive Committee began to think about encouraging its members to continue their interest in the sport of rodeo and agriculture by pursuing agricultural careers in college.
Therefore, the Texas Youth Rodeo Association Scholarship Fund was born. Each year our graduating seniors are awarded scholarships based on their academics, community service and essay. Our scholarships are represented currently by members in 15 colleges and universities throughout Texas.
TYRA recognizes that many young people and educators today come from urban backgrounds and have little knowledge of the opportunities available to them in the sport of rodeo and the world of agriculture. Our goal is to promote awareness of such programs.
TYRA has a rich tradition and history of stewardship to the community, agriculture industry and youth of Texas. With a clear vision of the future, a successful past and continual dedication from the TYRA and its members the TYRA will continue to be a pillar of strength and support to the youth of Texas.
The TYRA is committed to the betterment of the community and furthering the organization’s mission: “Helping Youth Today So That The Sport Of Rodeo and Agriculture Can Grow Tomorrow.”
