Congratulations to the 2018 Scholarship Winners
This year the Garden Club awarded one $1500 scholarship to a BBA high school senior. We are pleased to announce our 2018 Garden Club of Manchester Scholarship winner is Jackson Cuddy Ameden. Jackson will be studying forestry at UVM’s Rubinstein School of Environment and Natural Resources. Jackson wrote in his essay, “I love Vermont; it is my home and I plan on a career that involves preserving/sustaining its resources. I hope to work for the Forest Service and eventually start my own forestry business.” We all wish Jackson continued success!! Garden Club's Carolyn Smith, Scholarship Chair, was on hand to present the award.
In addition to the Club scholarship, the Federated Garden Club of VT selects one student for the state’s Mabel Mayforth Scholarship, which awards $1000 scholarships to college juniors and seniors and Masters students. For more info vermontfgcv.com.
