On behalf of Chico Equestrian Association, we would like to extend our congratulations to the following recipients of our scholarships for 2013:
  • Courtney Wood,      Chico High School
  • Anthony Sanfilippo  Core Butte Charter School
  • Kaydi Lewis,           Core Butte Charter School
It was a pleasure interviewing these candidates and not an easy task to have to decide on the recipients.  All of the candidates were very well qualified and have great records in school and in their extra curricular activities such as 4-H, FFA, &/or sports and other community related activities.  These 3 excelled in all aspects.

Good Job and Good luck.
