June 08, 2009

The Town and Country Garden Club has awarded its 2008-09 scholarships of $500 each to Aaron Householder, a sophomore at Penn State Mont Alto and Allen Mackey, a senior at Clear Spring High School.

Aaron has been a dean's list student each semester, carrying a 3.8 grade-point average. He is a 2007 graduate of Smithsburg High School.

One of his instructors stated, "Aaron takes pride in his work, wants to do the best he can and genuinely cares about the quality of his work."

This is reflected in his volunteer work of installing and maintaining the landscape at his church.

He is pursuing a four-year degree in landscape contracting and design, and will be a junior at Penn State's main campus in the fall.
