CAMBRIDGE — The Dorchester Garden Club presented College Scholarship Awards to two young women from Dorchester County last week, Ja Nae Smith, a resident of Cambridge and a Cambridge-South Dorchester High School graduate and Rachel Widmaier of East New Market and North Dorchester High School.
In August, Ms. Smith will be heading to the University of Maryland, majoring in Biology and Ms. Widmaier will attend New Mexico State University, majoring in Animal Science. The club’s scholarship is awarded to an applicant pursuing a major in the field of agriculture, botany, landscape design, environmental science or related field.
This year’s DGC scholarship committee included Bobbie Rideout and Billie Norton. DGC Vice President Cheryl Willey was also on hand to facilitate the award presentation.
This was the first year DGC awards were given to applicants from both North Dorchester and Cambridge-South Dorchester High Schools. DGC President, David Adams, said, “Our club is so happy to support these two deserving young women as they embark on the next exciting new venture in their education and careers that will make a difference in our world. They make all of Dorchester proud!”
