“HHYF is pleased to partner with David Snyder of International Sound Corporation, the sponsor of the Snyder Memorial Scholarship. With the changing educational models, HHYF scholarships are even more important for students, whether they are seeking a technical, associate or bachelor degree. More students having the opportunity to receive assistance can only make harness racing better” HHYF President Allison Conte commented.
