It’s the season for our local High School students to apply for college scholarships. Most applications need to be submitted by April 1st.
The Hermann Garden Club offers a scholarship in the amount of $1000, to be awarded to a deserving student who wishes to study horticulture, viticulture, plant science, landscaping, forestry or agriculture studies. Students attending either a 2-year or 4-year program are eligible to apply, and previous winners may apply in multiple years.
The Hermann Garden Club has many programs to benefit the city of Hermann as well as the High School students. Members assist the FFA students, in growing plant for the students’ annual plant sale, held the last weekend in April at the High School greenhouse.
The members of the Hermann Garden Club hold several fundraisers throughout the year, to fund their scholarship program. Best known are the annual Garden Tours, and the 2nd annual Garden Club Party. Proceeds from these events help with the scholarship as plantings around the city.
Members manage the garden at the Welcome Center Plaza and decorate this area for the Christmas holidays. Often, we provide plantings for various tourist events around town. All efforts are directed toward helping young people pursue plant related studies and to beautify Hermann!
The Hermann Garden Club asks all interested students to see their school counselors for applications and submit those applications by April 1, 2020. Good Luck.
