🇺🇸 As we celebrate Veterans Day on Monday, November 11, the Cowboy Capital Pro Rodeo Association is proud to recognize Lamphone “Johnny” Vorachith as the 2019 American Patriot Recipient. During this year’s Cowboy Capital of the World PRCA Rodeo, Johnny was honored and awarded a gift of $7,200. Money was raised from a Facebook Auction, Friday night ticket sales, and a contribution from Wrangler.
Johnny served in the US Army as a Field Artillery Specialist in the 82nd Airborne Division out of Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Upon being honorably discharged in 2014, he enrolled at Tarleton State University where he is a Business Administration major with plans to graduate next spring. In 2018, Johnny was unfortunately diagnosed with a benign brain tumor that was affecting his sight and required surgery. Along with handling his health issues, Johnny worked 2 jobs, all the while maintaining his responsibilities as a college student with a strong, positive outlook on life.
The CCPRA salutes Johnny and thanks him, as well as all the other veterans that served our country on this special holiday. Thank you to Juan Garcia, TSU Veterans Association President for recommending Johnny and assisting the CCPRA in finding this year’s American Patriot recipient.
Over the last five years, the CCPRA has proudly presented American Patriot Night during the Friday night performance of the PRCA Rodeo. Since the programs creation in 2015, over $70,000 has been awarded to five of our local Military Veterans as way to say “thank you” for their service to our country and community. Candidates of the program are selected through a process based on several criteria including financial need, medical aide, and character. The American Patriot program is intended to be a very loving, genuine gesture, and a heartfelt way to say “thank you” for their service. Please join us on Friday, September 25, 2020 as we celebrate American Patriot Night next year!
