Sheridan College is pleased to announce the hiring of Shelby Winchell as a new assistant coach for the Sheridan College Rodeo Team. Shelby, a native of Scottsbluff, NE, is a decorated Rodeo veteran with numerous awards to her name. She was twice the Reserve College National Champion (Goat Tier) and won the Central Rocky Mountain Region’s Reserve All-Around Cowgirl and Goat-Tying Championship in 2012.

“Shelby is one of the most dedicated, hardworking, focused and competitive individuals I have ever seen,” said Marc Gilkerson, Sheridan College Rodeo Coach. “I am extremely excited to have her be a part of our program.”

Shelby joins the Rodeo Team following successful completion of her B.S. in Education last May from Chadron State College, where she is currently pursuing a Masters of Education in School Counseling. She believes her educational background will be a big asset to her coaching.

“Coming from an education background, the opportunity of an education cannot be surpassed,” Shelby said. “Sheridan College provides programs that enhance the future for rodeo athletes and all students.”
