HALL OF FAME: A RECORD OF NSPRA HISTORY AND ACHIEVEMENTS

Meda Roberts

Carnegie, Oklahoma
Membership Card #2531 Gold

Meda came into this world in Hydro, OK on March 12, 1934 and
left on March 27, 1992. She had a closely knit family of three sisters,
two brothers and one son, Mark.

Meda earned the title of "First Lady of Ribbon Roping" with her
charisma and championship qualities. From day one she was a
competitor, a winner and a champion. An inspiration and an
encouragement to all rodeo contestants and anyone that ever knew
her, misses her chatter. She kept everything going and could
organize anything and make people glad to pitch in and help. She
had that special quality that draws people together and out of their
shells. With every fingernail polished and perfect, this stately lady
could out ride, out run and out dance any of us. She was a favorite
hazer, ribbon runner and barrel racer.

Meda was on the NSPRA Executive Board from '87-'90 and
instrumental in the formation of the HaIl of Fame and Museum.
She was a 3 time World Champion Ribbon Runner and 4 times, a
Finals Champion in the National Senior Pro Rodeo Association.
She has a trunk full of buckles and several saddles won in barrels
and ribbons throughout the years. She carried the flag, announced,
timed, helped with the fashion shows and had a meal or bed for any
friend. Meda made every rodeo more colorful, every dance more
fun and each life she touched, a little brighter. There were no requirements,
just a natural flow called feelings.
