Sauers Honored

American Quarter Horse Foundation announced that Director Emeritus LaRue Sauers of Sedalia, Mo., is the 1998 Merle Wood Humanitarian of the Year award winner. Sauers was honored at the "You Can Make A Difference" reception on Tuesday, Nov. 17, 1998, at the 25th Anniversary of the AQHA World Championship Show in Oklahoma City. Saurer distinguished himself in the American Quarter Horse industry and in his community.

The Merle Wood Humanitarian Award is in its second year and recognizes individuals who exemplify the humanitarian qualities most revered in humans--one who is benevolent, charitable, humane, and philanthropic--and who displays these qualities within the American Quarter Horse industry. Last year's inaugural winner was Mary Hopkins of Vicksburg, Miss.
