Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce is proud to introduce the seven Cowboy Homecoming Queen candidates that will be campaigning for the next four weeks that began July 16.
Ally Sherley, Linda Sanchez, Raylin Castillo, Cheyenne Garza, Erin Light, Autumn Guerra, and Angel Turley are the seven girls who are in the 2021 Cowboy Homecoming Court who will have the opportunity to represent themselves to be considered to win Cowboy Homecoming Queen.
During the first two weeks, the girls campaign material is limited to 8.5 x 11 flyers but after the second week the girls’ campaigning can be as big as they want it to be.
Cindy Mumm, Executive Director of Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce said that she encourages all Pleasanton residents to please go show your support for these wonderful young ladies who will be working hard at campaigning over the next several weeks by voting August 13 and 14.
Residents who reside in the Pleasanton Independent School District and students ninth grade and older at Pleasanton ISD, are eligible to vote on Aug.13-14 from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. at the Chamber of Commerce. Make sure to have valid ID, proof of residency in the district or proper school ID.
The Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce will announce late at night the five girls that will make it to the last final week of campaigning. This will leave five girls to be crowned at the Pleasanton’s Young Farmers Rodeo on Aug. 21 at the Atascosa County Show Barn. This year for the first time in a decade, The Cowboy of the Year and 55th Cowboy Homecoming Queen Coronation will be crowned on the same night.

When speaking about 2021 candidates Smith addressed words of encouragement towards the seven girls that are running to be Cowboy Homecoming Queen.
“Embrace it, and enjoy every minute of it, participate fully,” said Smith. “Understand the importance of the role that you carry in the community and the influence you have on younger generations.”
Due to the pandemic in 2020, a Cowboy Homecoming Queen was unfortunately not elected. However, the last 2019 Homecoming Court was 54th CH Princess Jussiah Lopez, 54th CH Princess Claudia Acuff, 54th CH Princess Cloe Rodriguez, 54th CH Princess Cali Evans, and 54th CH Queen Brianna Ortiz.
“Wishing all the candidates the best of luck on the Cowboy Homecoming Election,” said Mumm.
