The Cheyenne Frontier Days™ (CFD) General Committee announced that Miss Frontier, Bailey Bishop, and her Lady-in-Waiting, Savannah Messenger will continue their roles into 2021 for the 125th celebration. The annual event, known as the “Daddy of ‘em All®,” will not take place in 2020.
“While I am saddened that we will not be having Cheyenne Frontier Days™ this year, I understand the importance of keeping our community safe and healthy. I am honored the General Committee is allowing me the opportunity, and think highly enough of me to continue through next year as Miss Frontier 2021 for the 125th celebration,” Bishop said.
Bailey, the daughter of Todd and Jan Bishop, is a 2016 graduate of Burns High School. Bishop spent two years at Laramie County Community College. Currently, she is enrolled at the University of Wyoming. Bailey has been involved with CFD most of her life. She has participated in the Grand Parades, competed in junior barrels, and was a Dandy throughout high school.
“I’m confident in the opportunity to represent the Daddy of ‘em All for an additional year with my Miss Frontier and best friend, Bailey Bishop, by my side once again,” Messenger said. “I had the best year building up to the 124th celebration, and I look forward to another successful year getting ready for the unforgettable 125th. The community of Cheyenne is like no other – strong and courageous. We all ride for the brand because that’s the cowboy way. I’m excited to keep doing what we love.”
Savannah is the daughter of Kirk Messenger, Raedene Messenger and the late Mark Messenger. She is a 2016 graduate of Cheyenne Central High School. Currently, Savannah is a dental assistant at Grand Avenue Dental Center, and she is pursuing a degree in Communications at Laramie County Community College.
