Rose Escobar of Spreckles was named 2019 Miss Salinas Valley Fair after two days of competition. She is the daughter of Gary and Cheri Escobar and is a Junior with the Monterey County Home Charter School. One of Rose’s dreams is to run for Miss California Rodeo Salinas and have the opportunity to represent the Salinas Valley western way of life. She has participated in the Pageant of Flags at the 2018 California Rodeo and in the California Rodeo grand entry parade in 2017. Her future plans are to study Equine Dentistry and one day to open her own equine training-rehabilitation facility.
As Miss Salinas Valley Fair, Rose receives a $2,000 scholarship, Miss Salinas Valley Fair buckle, jacket, concho pin, leather portfolio and many more prizes from area donors.
