Master of Ceremonies - Ray Cogburn

rayI am excited to serve as the Master of Ceremonies for the 68th St. Patrick’s Banquet.  Growing up in Shamrock and getting to be a part of our annual celebration for many years gives one a sincere appreciation for the work done behind the scenes and all the many hours of preparation completed to make each celebration a huge success.  

I am a 1975 graduate of Shamrock High School.  I received a Bachelors degree from West Texas A&M University and a Masters of Education degree from Southwestern Oklahoma State University.  I began my education career by teaching and coaching in Shamrock in 1980, served as high school principal from 1988 to 2000, and superintendent from 2001 to 2007.  I accepted an administrative position at Region 16 Education Service Center in Amarillo in 2008 and I am completing my seventh year at Region 16 as the Associate Executive Director.  This year is my thirty-third year in the education arena.

My wonderful wife of thirty three years is also a native of Shamrock and a 1980 graduate of Shamrock High School.  She completed her degree at SWOSU in 1996.  Jackie is a licensed social worker employed by FirstCare Health Plans.  We have two children, Kinsey, a graduate of Shamrock High School and Texas Tech University.  Kinsey is employed by Amarillo ISD and teaches fifth grade at Paramount Terrace Elementary.   Kendall, a graduate of Randall High School and West Texas A&M University, is currently teaching science and coaching at Wylie High School.  Kendall’s wife, Kelly is a graduate of Raton High School and  West Texas A&M University.   She is employed as an accountant and grant manager at.Richardson ISD.  Jackie and I are very proud of all three of our kids and their desire to serve others in the field of education.

We always look forward to coming home to see our dad, Butch Cogburn, and to see the many friends we have grown to love over the years.   We are members of Hillside Christian Church in Amarillo and enjoy serving in the Guest Services area with our church family.

Dance - March 15th - Stoney LaRue and the Aresenals

stoney larueStoney LaRue and The Aresenals will kick up the jams at this years St. Patrick's Day Dance at the Shamrock Community Center on Saturday, March 15th at 9:00pm!


Stoney LaRue didn’t plan to take six years between studio albums, but there was an awful lot of life and music going on. For one of the icons of the Red Dirt Music movement, it was always about the moment that drove him to his next destination.

“I had a fiddle player and people kept telling me, ‘You need to get a band’,” recalls the performer/songwriter. “Live at Billy Bob’s was like jumping straight into the fire: two weeks after putting the band together, we recorded the album, hit the road and did 250 dates a year. We never looked back.”














Opening Act - Tommy Gallagher Band

Tommy Gallagher BandTommy Gallagher Band will kick up the jams at this years St. Patrick's Day Banquet and Dance, Opening for Stoney LaRue and The Aresenals at the Shamrock Community Center on Saturday, March 15th at 9:00pm!


For the guys in TGB, music runs thick in their blood. The Tommy Gallagher Band was originally started in April 2004, when Tommy Gallagher split off from a band he was playing in to start something with its own Country sound. Influenced by Texas icons like Cross Canadian Ragweed and Pat Green, the band soon had a smokin’ country sound all of their own.

Now six years and thousands of miles later, TGB has developed into one of the premier live music acts across the Southern Country market, earning the respect of new fans at every show with hard-hitting relatable lyrics and a high-energy stage performance.
