Marlys Pinske has been selected as the Harness Horse Youth Foundation’s Service To Youth recipient for 2018.
HHYF President Adam Bowden says it best: “I am not sure there is a more deserving recipient. Marlys represents everything great about what HHYF stands for and works towards. She is the embodiment of our principles and her goal of reaching the next generation through education and experience is a testament to a legacy we hope to carry forward.”
Marlys joined the HHYF board in 2004 as trustee. She served in all officer positions during her 14 years on the board; she worked tirelessly on countless projects and always empowering those around her.
