“For me, the most rewarding aspect of being a Sikeston Jaycee is having the opportunity to give back to our community. It's truly an honor to be able to witness first-hand the impact our organization has on so many lives."
-Travis Deere, 2020 Rodeo Chairman
Born and raised in Sikeston, Travis grew up attending the Rodeo and treats the four day event as a national holiday. He looks forward each year to the community coming out to have a good time in support of a great cause.
As a member of the Jaycees, Deere has learned to develop anything from livestock pens and chutes to budgets. He's extremely grateful to the members who donate their time and the families who make sacrifices to help this organization succeed.
