In loving memory, Sharon Starks-Reid

It is with great sadness today that we learned of the passing of long-time AGRA member Sharon Starks-Reid. During her time with AGRA Sharon served on the board, on various committees, and was Ms AGRA 2008 & 2010, MsTER AGRA 2015, and Ms IGRA 2009 & 2011, MsTER IGRA 1st Runner Up 2016. Her love of rodeo was inspiring and her participation on the chute crew and everywhere will not be forgotten. 

Sharon will be greatly missed by all who knew her and all of our thoughts and love are with her family at this time. 

If you would like to send a card to Sharon’s wife and family, please send it to:
