SHELBY SPRIET is the 2012 Pendleton Round-Up Top Hand, an award presented annually to a youth volunteer for exceptional service. Shelby is the 15 year old daughter of J.J. and Terri Spriet and a sophomore at Pendleton High School. Her volunteer contributions include working as an office assistant during her last three summer vacations where she answers phones, sells tickets, helps customers, and also cashiers. During Round-Up week she helps in the store before heading to the stadium to usher, then returns to the store to work until closing. She also ushers for Happy Canyon Night Pageant, the PBR and Concert events. The Happy Canyon Association presented Shelby Spriet the 2012 Roy Raley Youth Volunteer Award for excellent volunteer service. Both organizations honored Shelby at their annual joint Minor’s Party at Rodeo Lanes, in Pendleton. Round-Up President Tim Hawkins and Happy Canyon Show Director Jason Hill each said Shelby was the “obvious choice” although neither group knew ahead of time of the others selection.
