HHYF ANNOUNCES 2018 SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS
 
-- HHYF

SUDLERSVILLE, MD -- September 5, 2018 -- The Harness Horse Youth Foundation is pleased to announce that Hanna Darrow of Dublin, Ohio and Katie Eick of Farmingdale, New Jersey have been awarded the 2018 Curt Greene Memorial Scholarship and the Sweet Karen Scholarship respectively.

The $2500 Curt Greene Scholarship honors an individual who has demonstrated a passion for harness racing and strives to achieve great things within the industry. Hanna Darrow, the daughter of J. Robert Darrow and Kelly Darrow, demonstrates that passion with her goal of becoming an equine veterinarian. Hanna is entering her third year at the University of Kentucky where she is pursuing degrees in Pre-Vet and Equine Science and Management. While attending school, Hanna has been involved in countless extracurricular activities and community service projects. In addition, she also works as a Veterinary Assistant at Woodland Run Equine Veterinary Facility as well as shadowing 1,500 hours with the clinic’s staff of veterinarians.

“Knowing his legacy, I am honored to receive the Curt Greene Memorial Scholarship, thank you to the Harness Horse Youth Foundation!” exclaimed Hanna when she heard of her selection.

Katie Eick, the daughter of Floyd and Jennifer Eick, has been attending, volunteering and interning at HHYF camps since 2012 which cemented her selection as the 2018 Sweet Karen Scholarship. The $1500 Sweet Karen Scholarship is awarded to students who have attended previous HHYF camps and who look to further harness racing involvement as they move forward with their education. Since attending her first camp (with no harness racing experience), Katie has developed a deep appreciation for Standardbreds and hopes to be able to dedicate her life to helping them. Katie looks to pursue a degree in Equine Science at Rutgers University-New Brunswick where she would ultimately like to become and equine sports and rehabilitation therapist. Katie is very grateful for what the experiences she has had and the people she has met through the HHYF.

“Hanna and Katie exemplify the qualities the committee looks for in the selection process. They are hard-working, dedicated, and intelligent young women and HHYF is delighted to be able to assist them with their academic goals,” said Executive Director Ellen Taylor.

The Harness Horse Youth Foundation is a charitable 501(c)3 organization dedicated to providing young people and their families educational opportunities with harness horses in order to foster the next generation of participants and fans. The Foundation has been making a difference in young people's lives since 1976; its programs include interactive learning experiences with racehorses as well as offering scholarships and creating and distributing educational materials relating to harness racing.
