Sarah Hayden of Farmington, Mo., is the recipient of two major awards from the equestrian studies division at William Woods University.
She was recognized as the 2012 Distinguished Scholar in Equestrian Science, an award based on academic achievement. Faculties of the various disciplines may, but are not obliged to, designate graduating seniors as Distinguished Scholars. Eligibility requires a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.4; the equestrian faculty also considers other relevant academic factors and variables in the selection process.
She also received the 2012 Dressage Appreciation Award. Each year the riding disciplines recognize outstanding graduating seniors in each discipline.
Karen Pautz, WWU clinical dressage instructor, identified Hayden as one of the dressage concentration’s go-to people.
“She is always ready to help where help is needed, in the arena, in the classroom and at the shows,” Pautz said.
Hayden graduated with a double major (equestrian science and English) in only three years.
