    Maya Mendenhall
    SENIOR HIGHLIGHT:  Maya Mendenhall first became interested in horses at the age of six. By the time she was 10, she was competing in jackpots. By 13, she found herself immersed in the junior rodeo circuit. As she and her family did yet not own a horse of their own, she had no choice but to ride the horses of others. It was from each of these unique experiences, however, that Maya believes she honed the necessary skills needed to excel at the sport. She eventually used money she earned from working after school to purchase a horse of her own, which she named Payson. Maya and Payson have since won countless awards and trophies from dozens of competitions. Mendenhall, who currently attends East Valley Institute of Technology (EVIT) and is studying to be a veterinary assistant, plans to attend university here in Arizona to study veterinary medicine and eventually become a veterinarian.
