Dear Walking Horse Report Staff,

Thank you for the help you gave us in getting out the word on our scholarship presentation. We have selected a very worthy candidate to receive a $500 award. This will be presented at our Smoky Mountain Classic in Harriman, Tenn., on Saturday, May 15, 2010. In the meantime, we would love to announce her selection to the rest of the walking horse community.

Janie Lee Stokes is presently attending Pillissippi State and will transfer to East Tennessee State University this summer to pursue a degree in business. Janie has owned and ridden walking horses since the age of nine. She is actively involved in the Smoky Mountain Walking Horse Association as well as the East Tennessee Association. We wish her every success in her future endeavors.

Thank you for your help in honoring this young equestrian.

Jean Brown, SMWHA
