Sherry Wuetherich Scholarship Winner
Brianne Bell has been a member of ESAA for more than 10 years. She will graduate from James Madison High School in Oakton, VA. Brianne will be attending George Mason University to study computer science and follow her passion in exploring artificial intelligence. In her free time she works on perfecting her English setter grooming skills while indulging in another passion, the arts. Brianne plays the flute, guitar and piano and has been taking art classes since she was 9 years old. Brianne would like to express her appreciation and thank ESAA for awarding her the scholarship. She says English setters have been an integral part of her life for as long as she can remember and she knows regardless of where her college path takes her, there will always be an English setter by her side CAlex Van Meter’s love of English Setters was kindled when he began showing Stardom Eversett Celestial Fireball ‘Hailee’ in fall of 2013 and joined ESAA. When he is not presenting in the breed ring, Alex enjoys running his cocker spaniel in agility, or spending time alone reading or writing with his dogs. Alex will graduate from a homeschool program this year. Alex will attend Rutgers University and plans to study English and journalism or communication in order to pursue his passions for writing and public speaking. While he does not have any specific plans for the future, he has expressed an interest in using his writing and speaking skills as well as his love of English Setters to promote the cause of purebred dogs and educate the public about them.   Sherry Wuetherich likes big dogs and small dogs, but loves English setters, especially Oliver. She began her showing career with a Carin Terrier at age 5 and continued on to show English mastiffs. Four years ago, after researching options for a new juniors dog, Sherry fell in love with Oliver, her new English setter puppy. Sherry says she has always liked sporing dogs but choose an English setter because of their great temperament. She has finished a championship on Oliver and looks forward to obtaining his grand championship. Sherry has been a member of ESAA for four years. Sherry will graduate from Glencoe Sliver Lake High School in Gaylord, MN this year. She plans to attend Ridgewater College.
