The scholarship is in memory of Raymond Ned and Marilyn Wickersham who both had a lifelong love of gardening. Owsley is pursuing an Associate in Applied Science degree in horticulture with a specialty in greenhouses. He hopes to open his own business in the horticulture industry. The Wickersham Family Scholarship is awarded in the fall and spring semesters. Each scholarship is awarded to an MCC horticulture student who is enrolled in a minimum of six credit hours. To qualify for this scholarship, the student must provide a letter of recommendation from an instructor and have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0.
