Faces of Tribland: Nate Allen

Nate Allen, the Associate Dean of Instruction for Academic
Education at Central Community College-Hastings, checks a
horse shoe Wednesday night at the Adams County
Fairgrounds. Allen is in his fifth year as a High School Rodeo

Nate Allen knows a thing or two about rodeo. So when the former college-level steer wrestler says Hastings has a nice rodeo facility in the Adams County Fairgrounds, he knows what he's talking about.

"In New Mexico where we held the rodeo and state 4-H horse show, they had beautiful facilities," said the Juniata resident, "but our facilities here are even better."

Allen, 44, just completed another year of helping organize the State High School Rodeo, an event he says Hastings is lucky to host each year. But he knows luck has nothing to do with it. Between the impressive facilities and the plethora of willing volunteers, Hastings offers a superb event.
