HALL OF FAME: A RECORD OF NSPRA HISTORY AND ACHIEVEMENTS
CLINT MARTIN – GOLD CARD #555
Clint was born in Saskachewan, Canada, and grew up on a ranch north of Malta, MT. He has spent his entire life in the livestock business, ranching, and served 12 years as Executive Manager of the Lewistown Livestock Auction. He and his wife, Sharon, ranch in Lewiston, MT, where they have lived and worked for 37 years. They have two children, Bruce and Brenda, and nine wonderful grandchildren, with whom they enjoy an unusually close knit extended family relationship.
Clint has been involved in rodeo for 60+ years, roping and rodeoing whenever he could get away from the ranch. He also judged many rodeos along the way. He joined NSPRA in the 80’s at the first NOTRA rodeo held in Roundup, MT, and qualified for the finals every year that he rodeoed with the Association. He joined CSPRA in 1992 and has qualified for their finals every year since then. A highlight of his career with NSPRA was winning the SNFR Average in the team roping with Benny Reynolds in 1996.
As a committee of two, Clint and Sharon put on the NSPRA Rodeo in Lewistown, MT, in 2000, and have continued to support and work for the Association in numerous ways every year since. Together, Clint and Sharon have donated 18 championship saddles and two buckles to NSPRA. Because of Clint’s calm, quiet support in the background, Sharon made a major contribution to the success of numerous NSPRA rodeo benefit calcutta’s over the years.
Always willing to help, Clint did anything needed to promote his sport and Association, from carting boxes up two flights of stairs, to selling raffle tickets on a trailer, to working all night, to digging deep in his pocket to make donations and sponsor rodeos.
Clint truly values the wonderful friends he has made and the team roping partners he has had throughout the years of rodeoing with the NSPRA.
As a silent partner in Sharon’s extensive contribution to rodeo and to the NSPRA, Clint never received the recognition and the thanks that he deserved – until now!
