For the second year in a row, NDSU horticulture student Jillian Patrie has received a scholarship sponsored by the Green Thumb Garden Club of Casselton, North Dakota. The scholarship was awarded during Pie Day at Casselwood Retirement Center in Casselton.
For the last five years, the group has hosted a Pie Day to raise funds for the scholarship. The pie sale proceeds are donated to a horticulture student chosen by the NDSU horticulture faculty.
Patrie is a senior from St. Cloud, Minnesota, with an emphasis in the production and business option in the horticulture program. She has been active in the NDSU Horticulture and Forestry Club. Her career plans are to manage a garden center or greenhouse after graduation.
As a student-focused, land grant, research institution, we serve our citizens.
