Rep. Jenny Horne has awarded her annual $1,000 college scholarship to Aurie Engel Schmieding, a recent graduate of Pinewood Preparatory School.

The Jenny Horne Scholarship is awarded in Rep. Horne’s honor by the South Carolina General Assembly Women’s Caucus.

“I was impressed by Aurie Engel’s superior leadership skills, a commitment to public service, academic excellence, and her superior athleticism,” Horne said. “She is an exceptional young woman whom I expect will achieve great things in her collegiate careers and will contribute to making South Carolina a better place to live.”

Aurie Engel Schmieding will attend the University of South Carolina in the fall as a member of its SEC Champion Equestrian Team, led by Coach Boo Major. While at Pinewood, she was on back-to-back state championship Cheerleading and Equestrian teams. She is the IEA Varsity Intermediate Individual Reining National Champion.

When she is not riding, she is a performing musician. She and her older sister, Aly Clynes, and their band “Home Grown” performed for many charity bluegrass events and festivals.

A talented vocalist and Mandolin player, Aurie Engel and her sister received early instruction in music and in horseback riding by their devoted parents, Dana and Robyn Schmieding of Summerville. Aurie Engel has also served as an Acolyte at Bethany United Methodist Church, and she is the granddaughter of Bobby and Carol Beach of Summerville.
