Shane Angle has been awarded the 2018 Harness Horsemen International annual $4,000 Jerome L. Hauck Scholarship.
Angle, 18, hails from Mountain Top, Pennsylvania and is currently attending Stevenson University and pursuing a degree in Business Administration. He is the son of Ernest “Bucky” Angle, Jr., and Laura Angle who work as a husband and wife training team not far from Pocono Downs.
“Harness racing has truly had an extremely positive influence on my life,” Shane says. “The most positive influence that harness racing has had if through my mom and dad. I see them getting up and going to the track in the morning together, then working a whole day just to come home and do more work around the house. They go to various racetracks around the region, driving non-stop just to make sure we are all happy and have a great life. It is truly inspiring to me to see them working together like they do and showing the passion every day. It all translates to me just showing how if you love something and put your whole heart into it, you can make anything worked and, in the end, you will be rewarded.”
Angle is currently on the Dean’s List at Stevenson University, a member of the National Honors Society, National French Honor Society, National Business Honor Society and Leadership Scholar among his scholastic achievements. He also volunteers at the McGowen Family Center and is determined to become a PGA participant after college.
“I am obtaining my degree with a concentration on entrepreneurship in order to be able to start my own golf instruction business while chasing my ultimate goal once I get out of college,” he said. “With my ambition and sheer determination, I know I will be able to make my dream of playing professional golf for a living come true.” (HHI)
