Meet Tana, a Business Management student and traveling rodeo enthusiast from Fowler, Colorado.
She says she practically grew up on horseback, and that passion has carried into her adulthood. In fact, it’s all the time she spends on the road with the rodeo that makes an university online the perfect fit as she works toward her degree.
“I get to complete my studies at my pace,” she said.
And if she approaches her schoolwork the way she approaches life, that’s quite a pace! She ran her first barrel race at age 4, and she still runs them today. She also ropes calves and, along with her husband Chase, teaches kids of all ages learn the love of competing.
