Cass County Master Gardeners Award Scholarship

Cole Madsen Scholarship Presentation

The Cass County, Iowa Master Gardeners (CCMG) offer a $1,000 scholarship annually, available to students who are graduating seniors or graduates of any Iowa school districts in which current members of CCMG reside.
The 2018 scholarship was awarded to Cole Madsen of Exira-EHK, who will be attending DMAAC, enrolled in their horticulture program.  Pictured with Madsen is Master Gardener Kathy Johnson, who lives in the Exira-EHK school district, presenting the scholarship at the school’s Award Night in May.
The goal of the Master Gardener program is to support horticulture education and community service.  CCMG members provide many hours of volunteer service in their communities.  Accordingly, this scholarship is intended to provide post-secondary funds to individuals who are studying, or intend to pursue a career in, a horticulture-related field.  The scholarship winner is selected based upon academic success, history of community service, and career goals. Demonstration of interest and experience in horticulture is also encouraged.
