HALL OF FAME: A RECORD OF NSPRA HISTORY AND ACHIEVEMENTS

Sharon Martin

SHARON MARTIN – GOLD CARD #5555
Sharon was born in Havre, MT, and raised on a cattle ranch in the Bear Paw Mountains. She married Clint in 1956 and has spent 53 years in partnership with him as parent, rancher, rodeo participant, and promoter of rodeo. This exceptional couple have ranched near Lewiston, MT, for the past 37 years and enjoy a close extended family relationship with son, Bruce, daughter, Brenda, and nine wonderful grandchildren.
In her younger years, Sharon competed in barrels, breakaway, ribbon roping and team roping, but her interest and expertise soon led her into the rodeo office where she has served in all capacities. Beginning as a timer and rodeo secretary back in the days before calculators and computers, her ability soon earned her prestigious jobs, such as secretarying NARC rodeos in Denver, CO, and Gallup, NM.
Sharon was the MT State High School Rodeo Secretary for twelve years, the Executive Secretary of the NRA for four years, and has timed and secretaried numerous college rodeos. She timed and secretaried for the NSPRA Finals Rodeo in Reno, twice for free, and for the past 10 years has done the computer payoff at the CSPRA Finals. She frequently put on secretary and timer schools at the request of committees and associations.
Eventually, Sharon’s extensive experience in all facets of the rodeo office led her to form Big Sky Central Entry, and she spent the next 25 years taking entries for NSPRA and the NRA. She often assists rodeo committees for free, doing everything from writing receipts to the computer payoff.
In addition to her work behind the scenes, Sharon and Clint donated 18 Championship saddles and two buckles to NSPRA, and when she can attend, Sharon is a major factor in the success of benefit calcuttas.
Sharon has been recognized as Central Mt Outstanding Person, as NRA Personality of the Year, as CSPRA Volunteer of the Year, and she and Clint are honored annually as dignitary guests at the MT Wall of Fame Ceremony.
Sharon truly cherishes all the friends she has made through her life in rodeo.
