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.

Eligibility requirements
are:

•The applicant is a
full-time resident of Ocean Pines.

•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.

The OPGC Scholarship Program
adheres to a non-discriminatory policy, in both principle and practice, and
will not discriminate against candidates on the basis of race, gender, religion
or national origin. For more information, contact OPGC Scholarship Committee
Chair Sunny Lee at 410-641-5895.
