Scholarships in the Name of Kay White

To honor Kay White for her many contributions to the Club and to Vashon gardens, the VMIGC awards the Kay White Scholarship to one or two high school seniors based on students' commitment to the study horticulture, botany, environmental sciences, landscape architecture, or forestry.  VMIGC provides cash for the scholarship(s) through the Vashon Community Scholarship Foundation.  The committee works with a Vashon High School counselor in identifying possible scholarship candidates.  It then reviews each candidate's qualifications and determines the number of scholarships and the amount of each.  The committee gives a progress report to the Board at the May meeting.
