Steven Money: A cow­boy rid­ing into re­tire­ment

Serve Daily - - EMPOWERING LIBERTY - By Al­li­son Davis

The Span­ish Fork Fi­esta Days Rodeo does not have the Mil­lion Dol­lar Sil­ver Tour des­ig­na­tion by co­in­ci­dence. Our lo­cal rodeo has come a long way thanks to Steven Money’s hard work as event man­ager and direc­tor of the Fi­esta Days Rodeo. Money knows rodeo like the back of his hand and has been putting our beloved rodeo to­gether for over 30 years now.

Ac­com­plish­ments like be­ing voted the num­ber one rodeo in the WPRA and in the In­ter­moun­tain Area, or the Fi­esta Days Rodeo com­mit­tee be­com­ing the first-ever Utah com­mit­tee in­ducted into the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame, prove what a ded­i­cated worker Steven Money is.

He an­nounced his re­tire­ment on horse­back, prov­ing what a cow­boy he truly is. His love for this town is ob­vi­ous as many call him “Mr. Rodeo,” a fit­ting ti­tle. He’s a true Span­ish Forkian, hav­ing been raised here and grad­u­ated from Span­ish Fork High School. Many fam­ily tra­di­tions are based around this rodeo, which has been go­ing on for more than 70 years now. The ben­e­fits it brings to this town are count­less and priceless. The Span­ish Fork Ro­tary Club ex­pressed its grat­i­tude to Money by nam­ing him “Cit­i­zen of the Year,” an honor so well de­served.

Mr. Rodeo lives up to his name each year as he puts to­gether this rodeo, and we’d like to send him off with our grat­i­tude for putting so much ef­fort into some­thing he loves and some­thing this com­mu­nity has cher­ished and en­joyed for so many years.
