Meet the Member Ty Penrod
story by Ruth Nicolaus
Ty Penrod is a senior in the Utah High School Rodeo Association. The seventeen year old cowboy competes in the cutting and the team roping, as a heeler for Branham Haskell.
He considers rodeo the funnest thing he does, but he also enjoys hunting deer, elk and waterfowl, especially mallards and Canada geese.
He is a senior at Payson High School, where wood shop is his favorite class. He’s currently making a king-sized walnut bed, and has made a buckle stand for his buckles, along with his dad’s and brother’s.
Ty is serious about his rodeo, he says. All of his spare time outside of school is spent practicing, which limits his free time, but he doesn’t mind.
The Genola, Utah resident loves his mother’s chicken alfredo, and if given the choice at a buffet, would make a bee line for the seafood and the steaks. Payson High School has an open campus, so he enjoys lunch at Café Rio, his favorite place to eat.
He has competed at the Utah High School Finals Rodeo the last three years, in the cutting all three, and in the team roping this past year. He qualified for Silver State but chose not to go this year.
After high school, he plans on attending college and team roping collegiately.
He has an older brother, Justus, who is nineteen, and two younger sisters, Josie, age fourteen, and Scarlett, age thirteen.
He is the son of Cody and Erica Penrod.
