The Miles City Garden Club (MCGC) presented $500 scholarships for the 2019-2020 college year to two recipients, Brooke Leidholt of Miles City and Tandi Kassner of Circle.

Leidholt is an animal science and range management major attending Northwest College at Powell, Wyoming. Kassner is attending Miles Community College and plans to pursue a degree in ag education, according to a MCGC news release.

Funding for annual scholarships is one of MCGC’s main goals. The members host several fundraising events throughout the year in order to aid local and regional students who are going into horticultural or ag-related fields.

These scholarships are available to recent Custer County District High School graduates or area college students who have completed their freshman year enrolled in an accredited four-year college or university, two-year community college or trade school in Montana or the surrounding states.
