For Immediate Release


Joan Prescott-Lighter, president of the Hawai`i Quarter Horse Association, presents HQHA's donation to Chancellor Rose Tseng as College of Agriculture, Forestry and Natural Resource Management Dean Dr. Michael Collier (L) and Dr. David Almond, assistant professor of animal science, look on.

The University of Hawai`i at Hilo recently received a $4,000 contribution from the Hawai`i Quarter Horse Association to help fund the construction of future stabling/stalling facilities for livestock at the University's
110-acre Agricultural Farm Laboratory in Panaewa. Association President Joan Prescott-Lighter presented the check to Chancellor Rose Tseng, Dr. Michael Collier, dean of the College of Agriculture, Forestry and Natural Resource Management, and Dr. David Almond, assistant professor of animal science.

The Hawai`i Quarter Horse Association, an affiliate member of the American Quarter Horse Association, promotes the ownership and use of the American Quarter Horse for pleasure, work and exhibition. "This organization strives to improve horsemanship and training techniques for all equestrians," Prescott-Lighter said. "It is through this contribution that equestrian education and activities will benefit the community."


"We deeply appreciate the generosity of the Hawai`i Quarter Horse Association," Tseng said. "Partnerships of this nature enable the University to make the most of its resources, which in turn allow us to do more for our students and the community we serve."
