Becky Waggoner has become the first female on Happy Canyon's board of directors.

The Happy Canyon Night Show and Pendleton Round-Up have been around for 100 years, and the organization has decided the group needs diversity in its staff and leadership positions.

Waggoner has been involved with the show since she was three years old, and for the last 17 years, has played the role of a nurse in the doctor scene. She is also on the 4-H advisory board as the Umatilla County Cattle-Women president.

Casey Evans and Casey Hunt are the other members of the board of directors.
