High School Senior Scholarship 2024

2024 Scholarship Winner
Duncan Parks




Congratulations to Duncan!! How many remember him riding on his pony back in the day?? Duncan is the son of Jamie and Melonie and brother to Samantha. This family’s involvement with Nooksack Valley Riders, Agnew Riders, and PSHA does not go unnoticed.

Duncan will graduate on June 7th from Lynden High School with a 3.95 GPA and will be attending Montana State University to study Accounting and Data Analytics while also attending their Honors College.

Duncan has been riding since birth and gaming (WSH/PSHA) for 16 years, including participating in WAHSET. He has competed at State Finals for past 12 years winning the Junior State Champion twice. And has also competed on our junior team at Interstate since age 10.

A short paragraph taken from Duncan's essay: "In moments of success, my PSHA family has been there to celebrate alongside me, cheering me on and sharing the joy of my successes. And in moments of adversity, they've provided unwavering support and encouragement, reminding me that I'm never alone in facing life's challenges."

The whole PSHA family is proud of our young member and wish him the best as he continues to further his education with many more successes and adversity.
