Our Scholarships

 

The Allen Garden Club sponsors two scholarships that are available through the Foundation for Allen Schools for college bound Allen High School seniors who plan to major in a horticulture related field.

Allen Garden Club - Helen M. Logan Scholarship
When asked to participate in activities, her answer was usually "yes". The times she couldn't help was when she was traveling to Canada or abroad.

She enjoyed learning about gardening in Texas and was always experimenting with new plants in her garden, although her favorites were her roses and native plants. She also enjoyed visiting public gardens in the area.

Helen found insects fascinating and would photograph them in hopes of learning the names of the various visitors to her garden.

Helen had hobbies in addition to gardening. She loved to paint and take pictures of the world around her, especially plants in her garden.

She loved her family to the moon and back and adored her grandson, Ayden. We truly do miss her.


 

Allen Garden Club - Carol Hubmer Scholarship
Carol started attending Allen Garden Club meetings when we first organized and met at Puckett's Nursery in Allen. She had moved to Allen from the northwest and wanted to learn more about gardening in our area and to meet others who also enjoyed gardening.

Carol checked out gardening books from the Allen Public library, researched Texas gardening information online, and learned from many of the master gardeners and other gardening experts over the years who gave presentations at our monthly meetings. 

Carol used the information she learned about gardening here to create a beautiful backyard oasis that contained many native and adapted plants. She volunteered her garden to be a part of two of our garden tours. She made sure people knew that she was a TCU fan with all the frog statues in her garden.

Carol volunteered with the Allen Garden Club for many of our projects and community events over the years. She always enjoyed learning and sharing her knowledge of gardening.
