Tessy submitted the following write up:
First of all, I would like to thank everyone that helped in the sponsorship of this program: Big West Color Classic in Drayton Valley, Zone 10 show in Ponoka and of course all the people that are a part of the APHC and the Saskatchewan Paint Horse Club. This scholarship is a wonderful program for everyone that is a part of the youth. It is a way to compete with other youth while also helping others to do better. Competition this year was tough, with Brooklyn Moch only half of a point behind me! All of my competitors had a great show year and they are all very great people! I wish all of the youth next year that are competing, Good Luck!
This scholarship will definitely come in handy in the future! When I grow up I would like to either become a dentist or a doctor. Both of these jobs will require many years of post secondary education. At the moment I am in grade 8 at Three Hills Public School (K-12). My favorite subject would have to be Gym but I also enjoy Math and Language Arts. My teachers are great people and they always have a way to help you understand something that you don’t get.
