The Dressage Foundation has just announced this year’s recipients of the Carol Lavell Gifted Memorial Fund Scholarships for Adult Amateurs. The full list of all recipients nationwide is published here: http://www.dressagefoundation.org/2014_Gifted_Fund_Recipients.htm. Gifted Fund recipients will each receive a $1,000 Scholarship to enable them to set aside quality time in concentrated training with a horse they own, with a trainer of choice, away from the daily pressures of jobs and family.
The two selections from Region 6 are both ODS members who are heavily involved as volunteers locally as well as state-wide. The first is Lisa Koch from Redmond, OR. She is an “L” Graduate and is the Vice President of the Central Oregon Chapter and is a Director at Large on the ODS Board of Directors.
The second recipient is Ed Miller. He is known by many ODS members as our most recent ODS Past President. He is from Ashland, OR, where he serves as treasurer for the State of Jefferson Chapter – ODS.
“Congratulations to these deserving Adult Amateurs for being selected to receive a $1,000 scholarship! Thanks to the generosity of Carol Lavell, her family, and friends, we are thrilled to provide this support,” said Jenny Johnson, Administrative Director of The Dressage Foundation. “We hope that each recipient will make the most of the concentrated training time that this scholarship will allow, and we look forward to hearing from each recipient about his or her experience.”
If you are an adult amateur, now is the time to set calendar reminders to apply for next year’s “Carol Lavell Gifted Memorial Fund Scholarships for Adult Amateurs” next fall. The deadline for 2015 funds will be 9/15/2014 and the full program information is available on The Dressage Foundation’s website: http://www.dressagefoundation.org/The_Carol_Lavell_Gifted_Fund.htm.
