Rockwall County Sheriff’s Posse readies for Saturday’s RoundUp, announces memorial scholarship opportunity

ROCKWALL, TX (Nov. 3, 2021) As the Rockwall County Sheriff’s Posse prepares to host its annual Roundup set for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. this Saturday, Nov. 6 in Historic Downtown Rockwall, organizers have announced its plans to award a Rockwall Posse Scholarship in memory of Rocky, the posse horse who lost its life following a tragic accident last week.

Rockwall County students graduating high school in the Spring of 2022 who participate in 4-H, FFA and other agriculture-related programs through the school district will be eligible to apply. As part of the Rockwall ISD local scholarship process, the application will go live Feb. 1, 2022.

Saturday’s Roundup will be a celebration of our community’s western heritage and agricultural roots, complete with live music, delicious food, an area for the kiddos to practice their ropin’ skills, and plenty of shopping at the western marketplace. Featured entertainers include Buddy Jewel, Mike Randall, and Summer Dean.

“The Posse has been a Rockwall community staple for 30 years. We are proud to serve and give back to our community when able. To see the kids’ faces light up and the joy it brings at parades and games really makes it all worth it for the group,” said Justin Holland, Texas State Representative and member of the Rockwall County Sheriff’s Posse.

Bring the whole family on Saturday to enjoy the fun, and stay tuned for more details to come on the scholarship. For more information, email .
