Charlie Mae Yates is the 17 year old daughter of Truly and Spence Yates and has an older brother, Wyatt. A Junior at Coquille High School, she is part of the Equestrian Team, competes in track and is dedicated to her studies. She enjoys ranch life, going camping, swimming, volleyball, track and field, photography and of course, horseback riding. Charlie Mae is active in 4-H and is a member of the Burton Prairie Wrangler 4-H Club. She appreciates the help she has received in the past and in turn uses her knowledge to guide younger 4-H riders.
When not on the back of a horse learning to improve her riding skills, Charlie Mae is studying to become a dietician and plans to attend Southern Oregon University to obtain her dietetics degree and participate on their track and field team. After graduating college she would like to work at a medical center as a dietician. Charlie Mae's ultimate goal is to save money to own and compete with reining horses.
