New Md. Thoroughbred Career Program class announced
From a Maryland Horse Inudstry Foundation release
The Maryland Horse Industry Foundation today announced the group of six selected to participate in the second Maryland Thoroughbred Career Program (MTCP).
They are Lauren Carter (University of Maryland), Brianna Higgs (Centenary University), Camille Lee (University of Maryland), Amber Roher (University of Kentucky), Farrah Staebell (Colorado State University) and Kandace Tignor (University of Findlay). Participant bios are available at marylandhorseindustryfoundation.org.
The program is managed by Jordyn Egan of the Maryland Horse Breeders Association.
Willie White, president of the Maryland Horse Breeders Association, said, “I find the people throughout the Thoroughbred industry to be some of the most passionate individuals I know. Young people often struggle to find a way to carry that passion on in finding a career path. The MTCP provides its participants with exposure and experiences that can give them real direction in determining how they can continue with their love of horses while developing that meaningful career. We are very proud of the program’s success as the result of Jordyn’s efforts and total commitment to the participants. I look forward to meeting this year’s group and learning more about their plans for the future.”
