Deborah has been an MRM Board member since 1998. She is a former director of the Mississippi High School Rodeo Queen pageant and has judged numerous state and local rodeo queen pageants over the past 25 years. Deborah and husband, Charles, reside in Brandon, where she is co-owner of her father's dry-wall business. When she's not volunteering her time and talents, you can find Deborah following her 2016 National Little Britches World Champion Barrel Racing granddaughter, Cara Beth Calhoun, her National Little Britches qualifier grandson, Case Calhoun, barrel racing daughter, Emily, and son-in-law, former WNFR Pick-Up Man, Shawn "Too Tall" Calhoun, or spending time with her other three precious grandchildren, Landon, Zoie, and Annlea . Although vacationing in St. John with best friend Cathy and daughter Laura is her favorite past time, she also enjoys gardening, home interior decorating, and being around her family and friends.
