Blanche Kelly, president of the Lincoln County Master Gardeners, proudly presented a $500 scholarship to Sam McDonald on Monday, May 13, 2013. Sam is a graduating senior from Silex High School and plans to major in plant science at the University of Missouri – Columbia this fall. He was chosen from several applications of seniors from Lincoln county who plan to major in agriculture, with an emphasis on horticulture.
The Lincoln County Master Gardeners have only been in existence since 2011 and were thrilled to be able to present what will hopefully become an annual scholarship. They wish Sam the best of luck in college.
