The 2018 Columbia County Fair and Rodeo Queen is Brooke Anderson. She currently calls Warren, Oregon home and was born and raised in Columbia County. Brooke is the 17 year old Daughter of Paul Anderson and Bridget Goodlin. Her family currently owns and operates a horse boarding facility where Brooke has worked as a stable hand and exercise rider for many years.
Queen Brooke is currently a junior at Scappoose High School. Throughout her time there she has played both rugby and soccer. She is a member of the Scappoose High School OHSET team and competes in many different events. Brooke is also very active in the community. She has been a part of the Columbia County 4H program for 8 years and has shown goats, rabbits, swine and horses. After graduating in 2019, Brooke plans to move on to higher education and study forestry as the first step towards a career as a Forest Ranger.
This year Brooke and her horse will be traveling throughout the county and the great northwest promoting the Columbia County Fair and Rodeo and sharing her love and knowledge of rodeo with people of all ages. She is excited to be a role model for young girls in the community and hopes that she can inspire the next generation to become more involved with rodeo and the western way of life.
