A Sumner County educator is up for a shot singing the National Anthem in Las Vegas. Jennifer Kunz has entered the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo National Anthem Contest.
Two grand prize winners will have the chance to perform the national anthem at the rodeo in Las Vegas in December of 2018.
According to the Conway Springs High School website, Jennifer has been teaching at Conway Springs since 2006 and is employed by the Sedgwick County Special Education Cooperative. She graduated from Emporia State University with a Bachelor of Science in Special Education and Psychology. She has previous teaching experience at Eureka Junior Senior High School and Goddard High School. Jennifer has coached volleyball, cheerleading, and track and is currently sponsoring the Pep Club and Senior Class at Conway Springs High School.
She said, “I actually saw the contest on Facebook when another friend shared it. After checking it out, I decided to enter. I love singing and especially enjoy singing our National Anthem. I have sang in numerous venues from sporting events, weddings, and funerals to Branson and the Miss Kansas Pageant. As I have focused on my teaching career and my family, singing has always been a hobby that I enjoy.

I need people to go and vote before this phase of the contest ends on September 13th. I have never attended the National Finals Rodeo in Vegas, but have always wanted to. All of my children are involved in the sport of rodeo and I enjoy it. “
