Hello, my name is Claudia Acuff. I am 16-years-old and a junior at Pleasanton High School.
I am the daughter of Stephanie Chapa and granddaughter of Richard and Elvia Chapa. I am very active in my community and school as an athletic trainer, color guard captain and involved in my youth group.
I am also a member of the Pleasanton High School Band, National Honor Society and Student Council. I am very grateful for this opportunity and experience.
It would be a great honor to serve the community of Pleasanton. Thank you.

Howdy! I am Leanna Marie Alcorta, a 2019-2020 Cowboy Homecoming Court candidate.
Opportunities to join traditional organizations such as the court will allow me to strengthen and exercise important skills such as time management, communication and leadership skills. With this opportunity, I would spread awareness to children’s cancer considering my brother once had it. I would love to inform people about this sickness and assist in gaining support for those who still live with this illness.
I would also use this opportunity to give back to my community. I hope to be part of the court this year. Thank you!

I am Cali Jane Evans, a 16-year-old junior at Pleasanton High School. I am the daughter of Sarah and Robby Evans and granddaughter of Craig and Mary Dowdy.
As a sixth generation Pleasanton resident, it would be an honor to be elected Cowboy Homecoming Queen. My family has a legacy of representing the area as my sister, cousin, two aunts and great-aunt were members of the Cowboy Homecoming Court in past years.
Service to our community has been important to our family and being elected Cowboy Homecoming Queen would give me the opportunity to continue this tradition. Thank you.
Hi, my name is Jussiah Lopez. I am the daughter of Amanda and Pablo (Pauly) Espinosa, and Robert Lopez.
I attend Pleasanton High School as a junior. I am a member of NHS and also on the Varsity Volleyball and Softball teams. I come from a hard-working family and I have never shied away from putting in time and dedication into all things that are important to me.
I think I would be a great candidate for Cowboy Homecoming Queen and would love to instill that all things may not be easy to achieve and that we all face obstacles that take dedication and hard work. But with ambition, dedication and determination, all that you believe and strive to achieve are possible. Don’t give up. The beginning is always the hardest. Life rewards those who work hard at it. Every vote is greatly appreciated.
My name is Brianna Ortiz. Raised in Campbellton, member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church.
A junior at PISD, I believe being part of a team is an honor. I’m an athletic trainer, powerlifter and business manager of yearbook.
My mom Sonya Ortiz has shown me to be active in the community as she is. It would be an honor to dedicate my time to the community of Pleasanton as your next queen for Cowboy Homecoming as my two sisters did, Abigail 2017 and Elena 2019.
One’s greatness is not what you have but what you give.
It would be my privilege to represent Pleasanton.
As a Pleasanton Homecoming Court representative, I am dedicated to representing my community by integrating young adults like myself and the youth of our community to being more involved, being a positive role model, and bringing others my age to doing the same.
I feel the saying is true that it takes a village to raise a child. I believe the future of our community starts with the young since they are the future. I trust that this will bring the community together, initiate better expectations and restore a sense of accountability as a whole.
Hello, Pleasanton. My name is Whitney Rice, daughter of Randy and Shelly Rice and granddaughter of Joanne Stanush Rice and I’m running to be your 2019 Cowboy Homecoming Queen.
So let me tell you a little about myself. I’m active in FFA, FCA and was a freshman cheerleader, and played basketball for two years. I have donated my time to helping in the Pleasanton Young Farmers since I was a child. I’ve spent much of my time working for Chuck and Kristine Fretwell on their ranch, helping to take care of livestock, and traveling to various places helping them out.
But as a proud fourthgeneration and descendant and a junior in high school, Pleasanton is my home. I’m excited for this opportunity to join my family before me who have been Cowboy Homecoming Queens, Cowboy of the Year and Cowboy Hall of Fame inductees. I want to continue in their footsteps as a role model and give back to the community that has encouraged and become a part of me.
