Jenna Kool, of Adel, will be attending Redlands Community College (RRC) in El Reno, Okla. this fall as a member of the equestrian team.

"The equestrian team is such a great way for students to be involved in a competitive sport without having a big financial burden," said Meriruth Cohenour, RRC equestrian coach. "The horses, tack and travel expenses are provided by the school, so the student can participate with very low cost input as opposed to showing horses on their own."

Kool’s talent and dedication earned her a spot on the team and a prestigious scholarship for the duration of her educational career. Kool plans to obtain an Associated of Science Degree in agriculture.
