Our 2022 - 2023 Queen
Karlynn Williams is the 14 year old daughter of Tawni and Justin Williams. A fifth generation Arizona native, born and raised in Payson Arizona. She is embarking on her high school career as a freshman in the 2023 - 2024 school year at Payson High School.
Her service theme is "stop bullying, rope up kindness" with this platform, Karlynn's goal is to make a positive impact by showing youth and young adults to stomp out bullying, and it's better to rope them up with kindness. Karlynn's love for horses started about the time she could walk.
She enjoys trail riding with her family and began competing in gymkana's at the age of seven. Her love for all animals is driving her goal of becoming a large animal veterinarian after she graduates high school. Her passion for rodeo and competition carries over to her other interests as well. She thrives as a catcher on her softball team and she also loves to play basketball and volleyball.
In her spare time Karlynn enjoys hunting, fishing and spending time with family and friends and swimming at the creek behind our house. Karlynn and her Cisco are honored to be a part of the rodeo royalty, and looks forward to all of the experiences she will gain from representing the Payson Pro Rodeo Committee as their teen queen.
