The Rotary Club of York Student Education Committee has selected its first recipient of the Donna E. Hayes Equine Scholarship, Margaret Brice.  Margaret was awarded a $ 3,000 scholarship for her senior year this fall at Penn State University as an Animal Science major and Equine Science minor.  She will resume her position as a live-in working student at the Penn State Quarter Horse Barn.  Margaret was home-schooled in Duncannon and spent her summer working on a ranch in Montana.      

A Rotary Club of York member for over 24 years, Alvin Hayes established the Donna E. Hayes scholarship in 2017 in honor of his late wife, who was very active in the equestrian circle in York County.  This scholarship is set up to help students attain their educational goals in the equine field of study and further the local equine community.  For more information about the student scholarship program, please contact Rotary Club of York Student Education Administrator Renea Oberdick at
