GLENDALE — Throughout her four years at Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy, senior Meghan Fitzpatrick never wavered from her commitment to the physically demanding and time-consuming sport of high school equestrian, despite an already loaded schedule of classes and activities.
On May 21, the sport she loves gave something back in return.
The Georgetown University-bound Fitzpatrick was the unanimously-voted recipient of the Interscholastic Equestrian League's Most Outstanding Senior Scholarship Award and it's accompanying $3,000 college scholarship based on her academic achievements, record of community service and performance at the league's four competitions this season.
"It was really great," Fitzpatrick said of receiving the award. "It's so nice to be recognized for my riding abilities, my love for horses and academic achievement."
