MHS Sophomore Places in Top 10 During Pennsylvania State 4-H Show
On Saturday, Oct. 27, Milton Hershey School sophomore Kloé Cunningham competed at the 2018 Pennsylvania State 4-H Horse Show. This is the first time in MHS history that a student qualified for the state competition in a driving class.
Kloé showed 20-year-old Haflinger mare, Polly, and competed against 13 other riders. Her work ethic and knowledge of horsemanship helped her place in the top 10 during the state competition.
“Kloé has been working hard to prepare her horse by getting involved with our horsemanship club and working as an Agricultural and Environmental Education (AEE) intern over the summer,” said Rachel Teller, MHS Associate Director of Agricultural and Environmental Education. “Kloé has been able to learn about horsemanship and general horse care.”
In order to qualify for the state level, Kloé participated in the county and district competitions. At the district 4-H show, she placed second in pleasure riding to secure her spot at the state show.
Through the Agricultural and Environmental Education program at Milton Hershey School, students like Kloé have opportunities to care for animals, learn about agriculture, and compete in 4-H shows. Learn more about the program.
