Howdy and welcome “Back in the Saddle” with the Burleson County Fair. My name is Jalynn Urbanosky.
I was born and raised here in Burleson County. I am the 16 year old daughter of Jason and Joni Urbanosky of Lyons, with an older brother Joshua and younger sister Jolie Sage. This upcoming fall I will be a junior at Somerville High School where I also enjoy participating in Softball and Volleyball. I was born profoundly deaf and have been blessed to be able to hear with the help of cochlear implants. Dealing with this disability from a very young age has helped me to learn so much and how to be able to help others grow from whatever situation they are faced with and never let anything limit your capabilities.
Growing up around the ranching industry I have enjoyed showing market steers, market hogs, breeding heifers and commercial heifers at the county as well as the state level. I also enjoy participating in numerous baked goods and creative living events at the Burleson County Fair. Participating in these events have helped me to grow as a person and become more involved in organizations such as becoming an Officer of Somerville FFA, Vice President of Frenstat 4-H, Secretary of Burleson County Livestock Judging Club, a Director of Texas Junior Angus Association, Member of the Texas Santa Gertrudis Association as well as the Texas Junior Charolais Association. All of these organizations have helped me grow as an individual and learn so much about agriculture, leadership and educating others. I believe having the experience and knowledge that these programs have helped provided me with will help me be a great candidate for 2022 Burleson County Fair Queen. I would appreciate your support and look forward to this year’s fair!
