The Park Rapids Garden Club Scholarship of $750 has been awarded to Brendan Kruchowski, a graduate of Park Rapids Area High School. Pursuing a degree in agronomy, Kruchowski will be attending college in Crookston. He grew up on a farm near Ponsford and is interested in growing quality plants to feed more people in the world.

This scholarship is awarded in recognition of scholastic accomplishment, good citizenship and leadership in addition to a genuine concern for the environment. It is supported by the group’s annual plant sale at the Farmer’s Market each spring. For information on joining the garden club, contact Karrie Kapsner at 732-9079.
