For Vyonne and Jeff Keller, the National Western is a family affair. Their fathers, Stan Sours and Bill Keller, were close friends and fellow Western Stock Show Association trustees as well as Roundup Riders of the Rockies board members. Their families have been Boots ’n Business luncheon and Citizens of the West mainstays and Goat Roping and Junior Livestock Auction participants.
The Kellers’ passion for the National Western and the West would make their dads proud. Jeff is a trustee of the NWSS Scholarship Trust as well as a WSSA trustee, and he also serves on the Roundup Riders of the Rockies board. That’s in addition to competing in both Team Penning and Ranch Sorting at the National Western for more than a decade.
