Adirondack grad receives 4-H Seybold-Guth scholarship

Posted

WEST LEYDEN — Hailey Smith, of West Leyden, a 2021 graduate of Adirondack High School, has been awarded the Seybold-Guth Memorial Scholarship, which is given each year in memory of long-time Oneida County Horse Program Coordinator, Audrey Seybold and 4-H supporter and owner of Ski Hi Ranch, Raymond Guth.

Both individuals shared a love of horses and were firmly convinced of the positive effect that a horse can have in molding the character of youth. In remembrance, the $250 Scholarship was created for Oneida County 4-H youth who are extremely active in the Oneida County 4-H Horse Program.

During her time at Adirondack High School, Smith was involved in many activities such as soccer, basketball, softball, Math Honor Society and National Honor Society. As a 10-year member of the Oneida County 4-H Horse Program, Smith gives credit to her first 4-H club, the Foothills 4-H Saddle Club, for introducing to her to horses and fueling her passion for them.

Her involvement in 4-H also allowed her to develop many life skills, including public speaking.

Smith attends SUNY Cobleskill and is working towards her goal of becoming an equine veterinarian and being involved in the equine industry.

Extension of Oneida County at 315-736-3394.
