All Rodeo Austin events support the scholarship program, but you can do even more by making a direct donation to the scholarship fund. You can donate any amount you wish, no donation is too small! Also, all scholarship donations are tax deductible.

The Rodeo Austin family lost one of its dearest members in 2017: rodeo legend Hadley Barrett. Hadley was a great friend to all who met him and his leadership in the rodeo industry helped take Rodeo Austin to new heights. Hadley was a 4X PRCA Announcer of the Year, a ProRodeo Hall of Fame Inductee in 1999, and was inducted into the Rodeo Austin Hall of Fame in 2015. He has been the voice of Rodeo Austin for over 20 years and his passion for the industry will never be forgotten.

Rodeo Austin announced on opening night that there will be a special Rodeo Austin scholarship awarded in Hadley Barrett’s name this summer at the Awards Ceremony. Now we are asking for everyone’s help in establishing the Hadley Barrett Memorial Endowment. Once fully funded at our goal of $25,000, this endowment will live on in perpetuity, helping send even more students to college for years to come.

If Hadley Barrett touched your heart, like he did with so many people he met along his travels, please consider making a donation of $50, $500, $5,000 or any amount of your choosing.

All donations made below will be directed to the Hadley Barrett Memorial Endowment.
