Rumson Garden Club awards scholarship to local student

RUMSON- The Rumson Garden Club has announced that Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School 2020 graduate Jack Spagnuola is this year’s recipient of the Rita Boyle Memorial Scholarship.

In a press release, the garden club said the young man plans to attend Villanova University, Villanova, Pa., where he will study biology and how the environment affects humans on a medical and social level.

The members of the Rumson Garden Club said they were grateful to Robert Boyle for his continued generous commitment to the award in memory of his late wife, Rita Morgan Boyle, who was a past-president and dedicated member of the garden club.

“I am happy to be able to give this award to such a qualified candidate. I wish Jack continued success in his academic studies. We need more smart people like Jack focused in environmental science,” Boyle said.

The Rita Boyle Memorial Scholarship is presented annually to a high school student who plans to attend an accredited college and who has shown a consistent interest in any area of environmental studies, horticulture or landscape design, according to the press release.

The 100-member Rumson Garden Club provides field trips, lectures and workshops that are designed to stimulate knowledge and a love of horticulture and the environment.

Civic projects keep the club’s members committed to beautifying and improving the local community and beyond, according to the press release. For more information, visit www.rumsongardenclubnj.org
