Seth "Ringo Kid" Ring was a part of our rodeo family who left us way to soon. Seth was a kind, generous and life-loving soul. Each year since his passing, his family has chosen to give back to the members of this association through his name. One boy and one girl are chosen to receive a monetary scholarship gift as well as a beautifully-designed belt buckle.
The North Carolina High School Rodeo Association is an independent student athletic association that provides an activity for Junior High and High School students. Our rodeo association promotes our Western heritage, but most importantly, creates and encourages our youth to excel in leadership, responsibility, dedication and commitment to our community.
The NCHSRA offers an opportunity for these student-athletes to excel not just in the sport of rodeo, but enables them to strengthen our local communities. The scholarship fund is an important bridge to a once in a lifetime, educational opportunity.
