The Rockport Garden Club’s 2022 scholarship awards were recently awarded at a private ceremony for graduates and their families at the Camden-Rockport High School. Two worthy recipients were awarded a total of $4,800.

Allison Gill of Tenants Harbor, who attends St. Lawrence University in Canton, N.Y., and majors in environmental science, was awarded $4,200.

Delia Cognard of Camden also received $4,200. She is an upcoming sophomore at Bishop’s University, in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada, and is majoring in geography. Post college, she wishes to join the Peace Corps for two years to help establish sustainable agricultural systems in under-developed countries.

RGC scholarships are comprised of 25% of their club’s net income and other designated or donated funds. They are awarded for the pursuit of horticultural or environmental-related degrees to Camden Hills Regional High School graduating seniors, and/or adults living in the community, who elect to return to college or other types of continuing education.

Marilyn McWilliams, RGC Scholarship Chair, says that awarding our yearly scholarships to the community is a rewarding, satisfying and long-held mission of the Rockport Garden Club.
