TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. — Lake of the Sky Garden Club is pleased to award a $2,000 scholarship to encourage and promote an individual’s study in landscaping, horticulture, forestry or environmental science. This scholarship is available to graduating high school seniors, recent graduates, anyone currently enrolled or planning to attend college in one of the above areas of study and nursery employees desiring to further their horticulture education. Applicants must be permanent residents of North Lake Tahoe, Truckee, Incline Village or the West Shore.

This year’s scholarship recipient is Madison Richey from Truckee High School. Richey will attend UC Davis in the fall and hopes to earn her degree in environmental engineering.
