Grovetown Middle School eighth-grader Jasmine Streeter recently won the Georgia Science Teachers Association Science Adventure Student Scholarship.
She received the scholarship at the Georgia Science Teacher Conference's annual awards banquet on Jekyll Island. She received $900 to attend a veterinary medicine camp at Michigan State University this summer.
After the camp, she'll share her experiences with other students.
"We're looking forward to you going to Michigan State and representing us and hope you learn a lot," said School Superintendent Tommy Price when he recognized her at the board meeting Feb. 25.
Jasmine, who was introduced to horses before she was even a year old, now has a 7-year-old Tennessee Walker named Picasso, and has owned a menagerie of animals. She is a volunteer at the Augusta-Richmond County Animal Shelter, The Barn, Girl Scout Camp Tanglewood's Horse Hill and at Hilltop Stables at Fort Gordon.
Jasmine Streeter will attend a veterinary medicine camp at Michigan State University this summer.
She was selected for the award based on a proposal she submitted.
"Only two students in the state receive these awards," said school board Chairman Wayne Bridges, who was at the conference when Jasmine was recognized. Bridges said a student from Brunswick received the other award.
Jasmine is the daughter of retired Sgt. Maj. James Streeter and La Verne Proctor-Streeter of Grovetown.
