Part of our mission at Talbot Humane is to promote humane care of all animals through educational opportunities. Thanks to the cooperation of the public and private schools in Talbot county and our youth volunteer opportunities, we have been able to reach tens of thousands of children over the past 15 years. This year we are very proud to present our first Talbot Humane Outstanding Youth Volunteer Scholarship Award to Kristianna Saelens. Kristianna interned with Talbot Humane for the 2013-14 school year. She continued on as an important part of our volunteer team even after her internship was completed in February.
This scholarship is completely funded by donors who earmark their gifts for this program. Eligibility for this annual scholarship, gifted to a high school senior are as follows: the student must be a Talbot county resident, must have shown themselves to be an ambassador for the animals of our community through volunteering or internships with Talbot Humane, and must be planning to attend a 2 or 4 year school with a concentration in one of the animal sciences in the fall of the granting year. Scholarship applications will be reviewed by committee in April and awarded in May of each year.
