UCWHA President Jimmy Sherrell presents scholarship check for $500.00 to Alexis Clark.
Upper Cumberland Walking Horse Association has offered scholarships to youth members for several years, we are proud to announce the recipient for the 2016 Scholarship is Alexis Clark of Baxter, TN. Alexis is the daughter of Travis & Dusty Clark of Baxter and a 2016 graduate from Upperman High School in Baxter, her Honors include National Honors Society, Tennessee Scholars & Academic Excellence, Top 10% Honors, Beta Club, Vital and FFA. She has enrolled at Tennessee Technology University in Cookeville, TN. to start this fall. She has been a UCWHA member since age of 6 and won several High Point Awards and Youth Sportsmanship Award.
During the recent Upper Cumberland Walking Horse Association Annual Horse Show, Dekalb County FFA helped with admission, collections and arena gates. To show our appreciation UCWHA is making a donation to Dekalb County FFA. The members of the Dekalb County FFA did an excellent job, without their help we would not have enough manpower to host the show and we always enjoy having them at our shows. It also introduces their members to the Tennessee Walking Horse and the process to show a horse.
