Youth Reiners Score Big With Scholarships

Chris Dennis
National Reining Horse Assn.

The Reining Horse Sports Foundation is excited to announce the recipients of more than $10,000 in academic and need-based scholarships for seven youth members: Christi Gordon, Alexis Daggett, Blair Willette, Holly Lauth, Bailey Walters, Kyle Edmonds and Julia Purus.

Members of the National Reining Horse Youth Association (NRHyA) from across the United States and Canada submitted applications for the RHSF Scholarships. The seven recipients were chosen by a committee, and were based on academic achievement, financial need, future goals, and involvement in NRHyA and NRHA.

Christi Gordon from Colorado, Blair Willette from Arizona and Holly Lauth from Minnesota, were each awarded $2,000 in RHSF Scholarship monies. Gordon currently attends Colorado Christian University where she is majoring in business administration. Willette is studying chemistry at Duke University and Lauth is attending Southwest Minnesota State University where she majors in radiography.
