Mattress Firm’s Student of The Week Celebrates Tucker Atkinson!
Meet Tucker, a freshman at Great Falls Central Catholic and one of Montana high school rodeo’s rising stars. Tucker won the bull-riding belt last weekend in Conrad. Tucker’s goals however are much bigger.
“After high school, I hope to go into college for bull-riding and I can get my PRCA card when I am 18 and that is my goal to get into PRCA,” said Tucker.
Tucker’s bull-riding dreams were greatly influenced by another Great Falls rodeo star that he idolized as a child.
“One of the guys I really look up to from Great Falls is Jesse Kruse and we’re family friends with him,” Tucker said. “You’ll see him behind the chutes and he’s always talking to little kids and I remember being a little kid and he signed my hat and that meant the world to me.”
Tucker enjoys spending his time inspiring and mentoring children in his community and also volunteers at local banquets to help raise money for Catholic education.
Mattress Firm wishes you all the success in your future endeavors Tucker Atkinson! Thank you for motivating and inspiring all of us!
