The Wellington Garden Club awarded four $1,000 scholarships to local students at its annual Spring Luncheon on May 2.
The Wellington Garden Club, founded in 1981, is a nonprofit organization committed to educating the community in specialties like gardening, horticulture, floral design and landscape design. The organization hopes to instill the love of gardening and the respect and protection of the environment.
The Wellington Garden Club holds fundraising events throughout the year, such as private garden tours, member meetings and Earth Day events. Through these events the club can provide opportunities for promising young men and women to further their education in horticulture, environmental sciences and other related courses.
The four recipients of this year’s scholarships are Maria Medina, set to attend Palm Beach State College; Rida Talukdar, currently studying environmental science at Palm Beach State College; Carson Miles, set to attend Palm Beach State College; and Seth Rhodes, set to attend the University of North Florida.
