Our National Pet Week Scholarship contest required an essay written on the subject “Love is a four-legged word.” Our judging panel had many excellent essays to read and select from. In the end, the decision revolved around two essays, one written by Madison Bentley and the other by Myra Caddick. After much discussion, the judges could not arrive at a clear decision on who had the best essay. But as in all contests, there has to be a winner.
Cornerstone Animal Hospital selected both young ladies to be Co-Winners of our 2022 National Pet Week Scholarship contest. Cornerstone will award both Madison Bentley and Myra Caddick each with a $1500 Scholarship. Congratulations to Madison Bentley and Myra Caddick for their outstanding work!
