In honor of one of Fallon’s most beloved cowgirls and ranchwomen, Tammy Lee, a Memorial Breakaway Roping and Scholarship Award Event was held at Fallon Livestock Marketing arena on July 9. Tammy was tragically killed in a ranching accident last July.
A custom-made, hand-crafted memorial bench, made by Rich Lee, Tammy’s father-in-law, was dedicated and will remain a regular fixture at the arena.
Not only did a host of family, friends, and the community gather for the well-attended event, a breakaway roping competition was held. Earning the Tammy Lee Annual Buckle Tough and scholarship was Ali Norcutt. Coincidentally, Ali is not-too-distant relation by marriage to Tammy Lee, and top-notch cowgirl in her own right, heading off to Texas Tech this August and is currently heading to the High School National Finals Rodeo in Lincoln, Nebraska.
