4H & Spanjian Family Scholarship

“4H has nurtured my passion for animals, inspiring me to pursue a career in veterinary science. 4H has shaped me into a confident team player. I am so honored and excited to have received this double scholarship from Don Diego!”

The $10,000 award went to Julian resident Carolyn Kravitz, who as Valedictorian graduates first in her Mountain Empire High School class with a 4.28 GPA. Saying, “I was completely overwhelmed to learn I had received two awards,” Carolyn intends to major in Molecular Biology/Genetics at Stanford. She is a dedicated horsewoman who even enjoys the nitty gritty details of care, including deworming. When not at the barn or riding, Carolyn serves as a youth camp volunteer, participates in cross-country and theatre, and plans to “earn a PhD and become a researcher at the corner of animal genetics and disease.”
