Sugar Land Garden Club awards scholarships
The Sugar Land Garden Club is pleased to announce their scholarship winners for 2014.
Rene Bhattacharga is the recipient of the scholarship at Stephen F. Austin University. Rene is majoring in Horticulture with an emphasis on landscape design.

Her goals are to further her studies, earn a graduate degree, and work for a landscape architecture firm. She hopes to do some humanitarian work in the U.S. and abroad in building a better environment.
Bethany Kenney has been awarded the scholarship at A&M University. Bethany is majoring in Horticulture with a study emphasis in floral design and event planning. She is a member of the Student Events Planners Association which helps plan and set up for events around the cities of Bryan and College Station throughout the year.
