Christiana Logan Named 2014 USDF Youth Volunteer of the Year
KY (November 17, 2014) - The United States Dressage Federation (USDF) is
pleased to announce that Christiana Logan of North Plains, OR, has been
selected as the recipient of the 2014 USDF Youth Volunteer of the Year Award, sponsored
by the USDF Youth Programs Advisory Subcommittee. This prestigious award honors one outstanding
youth volunteer who has contributed both nationally and locally to USDF and
dressage. As the winner, Christiana will be presented with a perpetual trophy,
donated by the Akin family of Warwick, NY, in honor of Lendon Gray, which is
permanently on display in the Roemer/USDF Hall of Fame, will be featured in the
yearbook issue of USDF Connection,
and will receive a “keeper” trophy.
Christiana, eighteen-years-old, already
has many years of service as a volunteer at USDF-recognized competitions under
her belt. In 2014 alone, she dedicated numerous
hours of volunteer service at competitions and clinics, including the Dressage
for the Ages ODS League, Heart of the Valley, and Washington and Marion County
4-H Dressage Clinics. Her volunteer work was a tremendous help in keeping the
shows and clinics running smoothly. Christiana has assisted show management in
every aspect, from helping plan to organizing and running events. This year, Christiana proved to be an
excellent contributor in unexpected situations. When a show manager had to be
pulled away from a competition for personal matters, Christiana took charge and
stepped up to the show manger position, assisting the show secretary with the
rest of the show, while being a participant herself.
“What is even more important than her
dressage, academic and leadership accomplishments, to me, is just what an
incredible human being she is. She is always considerate, inclusive,
supportive, yet holds strongly to the standards she has set for herself. I
truly could go on and on about this amazing, dedicated, thoughtful,
responsible, smart and talented young lady who has chosen to support and
promote the sport of dressage.” stated Carol Jackson, who nominated Christiana.
The USDF Youth Programs Committee selected Christiana
based on her passion for both horses and dressage. The committee wholeheartedly
commends Christiana for her dedication to dressage and the ability to be a
positive role model for other youth, through exceptional volunteerism.
