Ocean Pines Garden Club offers college scholarship

OCEAN PINES–The Ocean Pines Garden Club will present a scholarship to a qualified Stephen Decatur High School graduating senior. The available scholarship is in the amount of $1,500.
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 award may be used by the recipient to defray expenses at any approved degree or certificate granting college or university, 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.
