The Kent County Master Gardeners recently awarded local students Joshua W. Bethard, of Magnolia; Ryan D. Harris, of Harrington; and Justin S. Butler, of Magnolia, each with a $1,000

scholarship for the 2017-18 school year.

Accompanied by their family members, each student spoke briefly to the group at the annual July dinner meeting.

These scholarships are made possible by funds raised through the annual Kent County Master Gardener’s Plant Sale, held each April at Delaware State University.
