Teaching Little Dogies New Tricks

Meet the 2017 Crooked River Roundup Grand Marshal: Jody Stahancyk

Jody Stahancyk’s grandparents Joseph and Anna settled in Crook County in 1924 in a place on Lamonta Road. Jody was born in Prineville in 1948 at the old hospital on West 1st Street. She graduated from Crook County High School in 1966 and during her college and law school years she ran the Prineville Pool and taught many of the local children to swim. For the past 35 years, Jody has supported the Roundup with her annual party, BBQ and Queen Luncheon at the family ranch on Lamonta road. Jody is the Grand Marshal for this year’s Crooked River Roundup in Prineville. The rodeo runs from June 23-25 and the CCR races are July 12-15.
