Farm Forum

Aberdeen cosmetologist Melynda Sletten is preparing to take the year-long crown of Miss Rodeo South Dakota in January.

The 23-year-old Langford graduate is the daughter of Lynn and Brenda Sletten of Pierpont. She will travel across America representing South Dakota and rodeo, a sport in which she has been active in since age 5.

In December 2014, Sletten will compete in the Miss Rodeo America Pageant in Las Vegas at the National Finals Rodeo.
