The Walking Horse Trainers’ Auxiliary is a national non-profit organization dedicated to charitable organizations. Each year the Auxiliary awards scholarships to any person involved with Tennessee Walking Horses who is furthering his/her education. Each application is professionally evaluated and scored by several qualified professional people. Beth Thomas and Kari Tisma, both educators in Bedford County, Tennessee are currently head of the Scholarship Committee. 

Once again, the WHT Auxiliary proudly supported three exceptional young adults as they continue their educational career. The 2020 scholarships were awarded to Morgan McCormick, Maggie Loyd and Olivia Mason. 

Morgan McCormick graduated from Shelbyville Central High School and exceeded in academics, completing not only Honors and AP classes but also taking dual enrollment classes. In the Fall, Morgan will be attending The University of Tennessee in Knoxville where she has decided to take the path of either a Cardiologist or a Veterinarian. Maggie Loyd graduated with Honors from Middle Tennessee State University and will be attending Belmont University in Nashville to pursue her Pharmacy degree. Olivia Mason, a talented musician, proficient in playing more than 5 instruments, will be attending Motlow State Community College in the Fall and will then pursue furthering education in the medical field. 

With the endless support from the walking horse industry and the community, the Auxiliary will continue to award education scholarships year after year allowing young leaders to be the greater part of our next generation.
