Cape Fear Community College Student Receives Scholarship from Hampstead Garden Club
CFCC Landscape Gardening student Christa Cook is the recipient of a $1000 scholarship from the Hampstead Garden Club.
Each year,Â the Hampstead Garden Club provides a scholarship forÂ one student who has completed their first year of landscape gardening courses, obtained a GPA of 3.0 or higher, and has a need for financial assistance.
Christa Cook, winner of the 2013 scholarship, says the scholarship has eased her mind.Â â€œBecause of the scholarship, I am less worried about finances and more focused on my education.Â I will forever be thankful to the Hampstead Garden Club for this scholarship and for their continued support of the landscape gardening program at CFCC.â€
The Landscape Gardening program at CFCC emphasizes intensive, hands-on training in the field of horticulture to prepare students for careers. Course work includes plant propagation, greenhouse and nursery plant culture, plant identification, landscape planning, maintenance, and construction.
