« Return to News
Eick, the daughter of Floyd and Jennifer Eick, has been attending, volunteering and interning at HHYF camps since 2012 which cemented her selection as the 2018 Sweet Karen Scholarship. The $1500 Sweet Karen Scholarship is awarded to students who have attended previous HHYF camps and who look to further harness racing involvement as they move forward with their education. Since attending her first camp (with no harness racing experience), Katie has developed a deep appreciation for Standardbreds and hopes to be able to dedicate her life to helping them. Katie looks to pursue a degree in Equine Science at Rutgers University-New Brunswick where she would ultimately like to become and equine sports and rehabilitation therapist. Katie is very grateful for what the experiences she has had and the people she has met through the HHYF.
"Hanna and Katie exemplify the qualities the committee looks for in the selection process. They are hard-working, dedicated, and intelligent young women and HHYF is delighted to be able to assist them with their academic goals," said executive director Ellen Taylor. (HHYF)
