South Carolina Association Announces Scholarships



The  South Carolina Walking Horse Association (SCWHA) is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2011 annual scholarships.  The SCWHA awards two scholarships annually.  This year due to donations made in the memory of Melvin Wallace to the scholarship fund, each recipient will receive a scholarship of $1237.50.  The recipients this year are Helen S. Martin and Taylor A. Brazell.

Martin is the daughter of Jimmy and Beverly Martin from Prosperity, S.C.  She is currently enrolled in the Radiological Technology program at Piedmont Technical College.  Martin has been riding horses for sixteen years and bought her first walking horse about seven years ago.  She has been a member of the SCWHA for the past two years and has just started showing during that time.  She feels that she has come a long way in life and in her involvement with walking horses with  the support of her family and help from the friends that she has made in  the SCWHA.  Helen also joined the SCWHA Ladies Auxiliary and looks forward to being active their functions. 

Brazell is the daughter of  Don and Debbie Brazell from Elgin, S.C.   She is a graduate from Spring Valley High School and looks forward to attending Presbyterian College this fall.  She was a member of the Git’er Done 4-H Horse Club , the West Wateree Ropes and Reins 4-H Horse Club and 4-H Horse Ambassador.  She is a member of the SCWHA, WHOA and TWHBEA.  She has been involved with the Animal Science Club, the Howlemore Pet Sanctuary, and the Florence Charity Walking Horse Show.  Brazell has been riding for the past nine years.  She started  spending time at Golden “R” Stables about four years ago and became obsessed with walking horses.  She bought her first walking horse in 2009 and began showing.  She feels that her love for her walking horse and her success in showing came from the encouragement and support of  Leon Rembert. She knows that the support of her family and Leon have made her the person that she is today and looks forward to being in the future.

Both of these young ladies will be recognized for their achievements at the South Carolina Walking Horse Championship, October 28-29, 2011.
