Peggy Cummings-Bolling Memorial Scholarship
The Peggy Bolling Memorial Scholarship was first established in 2002 with proceeds from the “Scholarship Fun Ride.”  This event and scholarship program has been established by friends who loved and admired Peggy for her years of dedicated service in youth equestrian programs.

Peggy’s years of involvement included her first love, the “Happy Trails Handicapped Riding Club” which she helped create and direct through many years of success.  Other involvement included areas of 4-H and the Mason County Draft Horse Exhibit.  She also was an active member of the Mason County Chapter of Backcountry Horsemen of Washington and the Western Hafflinger Association.  Peggy was a Charter Member of the Equestriennes of Mason County.

Peggy was diagnosed with cancer in June 1998.  She fought a long and courageous battle against the disease, still finding the strength and time to share her love and encouragement with others.  Peggy passed away on April 30, 2001, leaving many friends who share happy memories of her.

This perpetual scholarship foundation has been founded in her memory by the Equestriennes of Mason County, the former members of Happy Trails, Mason County 4-H Clubs and the Mason County Chapter of Back Country Horsemen.
