The Mississippi Walking Horse Association is pleased to announce that Brittany Richardson, daughter of Guy and Patty Richardson of Greenwood, Miss., is this year’s recipient of the Lizzie Umberger Memorial Scholarship Fund. Richardson will receive a $500 scholarship to help with her academic pursuits.
Richardson is a graduate of J.Z. George High School in North Carrollton, Miss., where she was a cheerleader for all four years and also played softball. She was senior class treasurer and was selected as a homecoming maid for her junior and senior years. Richardson begins a major in nursing at Northwest Community College in Senatobia.
Richardson was selected for this honor based on her moral character, academic achievement, participation in the Mississippi Walking Horse Association and involvement in the Tennessee Walking Horse breed. The MWHA is very proud of Richardson and congratulates her on her achievement.
