This year will mark the fourth year for the Susan Rowe Fryer Memorial. The event, which includes Cowgirl barrel racing, Tie down Roping, Cowgirl Breakaway Roping and Team Roping, is held to commemorate Susan Rowe Fryer, who lost her two-year battle with breast cancer in October of 2007. Susan left behind a husband and 2 young boys.
Money made from this event will be donated to the Shirley Bowman Foundation and Mt. Carmel Foundation in Susan’s name. Since 2008, when it all began, over $17,000 has been donated, 100% towards patient care to Mt. Caramel and The Shirley Bowman Foundation.
New this year to the event, is a $500 scholarship that will be awarded to an eligible Ohio high school rodeo member. Susan was the first recipient of the scholarship when it was first introduced in 1987, sponsored by Rich Bradshaw.
Susan attended Pratt Community College, Pratt KS, on a rodeo scholarship for goat tying, barrel racing and breakaway roping. The following year, she transferred to Murray State in Kentucky and qualified for the College National Finals Rodeo, in goat tying. The finals were held in Bozeman Montana.
