Hanna Hussey

Dixie National Booster Club Scholarship winner

My name is Hanna Hussey and I am a senior at Mooreville High School.  I am the daughter of Herman Hussey Jr. and Debbie Hughes.  I won this scholarship with my gelding, Scarlett’s Express (Sam).  I have been running Sam since I was 13 years old.  Growing up, I always dreamed of showing at the Dixie National.  This year Sam and I were named Dixie National Champion in L1 Youth Poles, Youth Barrels, L1 Youth Stakes, and Youth Stakes.  After graduating I plan to attend Mississippi College to obtain my Bachelor of Science in Nursing and my Master of Fine Arts.  I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who helps put on the Dixie National and to everyone that contributes to this scholarship.  I am honored to have been this years recipient.
