Scholarship Committee Hard at Work
The LCMGA scholarship committee has been working diligently this year to find the best scholarship candidate. The scholarship was created to encourage youth to recognize the importance of effective horticultural and environmental practice. This years's applicants demonstrate the excellent caliber which exists in students of Lincoln County. This is the second year the scholarship has been awarded. Although making the choice is always difficult, it is heartening to see how many students believe that the mission of LCMGA is something that they value and plan to continue in their adult lives. The scholarship will be awarded in June.
