The Richmond Hill Garden Club recently awarded a $1,000 scholarship to Katherine Wood and a $500 scholarship to Carly Vargas, both seniors graduating from Richmond Hill High School.
The awards were presented May 8 during Honors Night at RHHS.
Wood plans to attend Green Mountain College in Vermont and major in environmental studies.
Vargas plans to attend Tennessee Technological University in Cookeville, Tennessee, to pursue a degree in either environmental studies or biology.
The garden club awards a $1,000 scholarship annually to a local high school senior who plans to major in a field related to environmental concerns, plants and/or gardening.
This year, due to having two exceptional candidates, the garden club awarded an additional $500 scholarship.
