Meet this year's National Anthem singers

HEATHER BADLEY - Thursday Night

Heather Badley grew up in Ponca City and stuck around to raise her family. She has been married to her husband Casey for 15 years and has 4 kids: Brytton, Cayson, Paetyn & Leryn. She is apart of her Praise and Worship team at Faith Tabernacle in Ponca City. She enjoys going to all of her children's activities and sporting events.

EMMA VALGORA - Friday Night

Emma Valgora is 14 years old, recently graduated from First Lutheran School, and will be attending Ponca City High School in the fall. She currently lives with her mother, Jill; sister, Savannah; and 3 bunnies. Emma began singing in school productions and joined Miss Suzi's Singing School in 4th grade. She has also participated in several Poncan Theatre - Evans Children's Academy productions. Some of Emma's hobbies, other than singing, include acting, painting, baking, and photography.



Lerin Thomas - Saturday Night

Lerin Thomas is a 22 year old Newkirk, OK native. She is the daughter of Jim Thomas and Sharla and Mike Phillips. Lerin is currently a senior at Oklahoma State University (Go Pokes!) and will receive her degree in Strategic Communications this December.

Last year, Lerin was chosen to sing the National Anthem at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas through a contest where the winners were determined by fan voting. The 101 Wild West Rodeo is where Lerin began singing the national anthem and will always think of this rodeo as her "hometown rodeo". Lerin is also the social media director for the 101 Wild West rodeo this year. She would like to wish all the contestants good luck. Let's Rodeo!
