Pines Garden Club offers scholarships to SDHS students
OCEAN PINES–Once again this year, the Ocean Pines Garden Club will present two $1,000 scholarships to qualified graduating seniors of Stephen Decatur High School.
The purpose of the OPGC’s scholarship program is to stimulate interest in gardening, horticulture, agriculture and the conservation and protection of the environment, as the greening of America extends to many professional and business industries.

•The applicant is a child or grandchild of a non-resident, who is an active member of the Ocean Pines Garden Club.
•The applicant agrees to follow the purpose of the scholarship as stated above and plans to attend an accredited institution of higher learning.
The award may be used by the recipient to defray expenses at any approved degree or certificate-granting college or university or technical or vocational school.
Applicants who apply and address the purpose above will be considered by a selection committee composed of members of the OPGC, as designated by the president of the club. An application form must be submitted to a senior guidance counselor at Stephen Decatur High School by April 22, 2014.
