2015 Scholarship Winners - $500 each
The Linden Garden Club received a thank you note from Katelyn Grace Martin, one of our 2015 horticultural book scholarship recipients.   Katelyn is 18 and graduated from Union Pines High School.  This June she started the horticulture program at Sandhills Community College during her senior year.  Horticulture has been her passion since her freshman year in high school.  Katelyn is a member of the Future Farmers of America (FFA) where she won numerous awards and served as a regional officer.  This January Katelyn was in a severe car accident that involved head injuries and feels she is blessed to have  fully recovered.  She also feels she "has received another blessing and that is the gift from all of you; the Linden Garden Club Scholarship".
Our other scholarship winners are Hunter Belton, Jessica Bullock, and Christina Isley.  As we learn more about these students we will let you know through our LGC newsletter and this web page. 

Below is the letter we received recently from Christina Isley in November 2015:

Our thank you note from scholarship recipient Christina Isley of Sanford


 “I am writing to express my sincere gratitude for your generous $500 Linden Garden Club of Pinewild Landscape Gardening Book Fund Scholarship.  I was thrilled to learn of my selection for this honor and I am deeply appreciative of your support.  You are the reason I am able to achieve my goals and chase my dreams while furthering my education within the horticultural field.

I am currently in the Landscape Gardening program with hopes of owning my own greenhouse business one day.  Being a part of this program has taught me so much already and I am thoroughly excited to be experiencing a job in the horticulture field soon after graduation.  The financial assistance you provided will be of great help to me in paying my educational expenses, and it will allow me to concentrate more of my time for studying.

By awarding me the Linden Garden Club of Pinewild Landscape Gardening Book Fund Scholarship, you have lightened my financial burden which allows me to focus more on my education.  Your generosity has inspired me to help others and give back to the community.  I hope one day I will be able to help students achieve their goals just as you have helped me.  I cannot thank you enough for your generosity in helping me achieve my dreams.”
