The Pottawatomie Garden Club announced recent St. Charles East graduate Tessa Miller and University of Illinois undergrad Joshua D’Avola are winners of its 2022 scholarships.

Miller will attend Oregon State’s College of Forestry.

D’Avola, who is entering his second year at Illinois, soon will choose more courses that apply to his major in environmental science.

The students were awarded scholarships because of a donation from Dixon Bogart in memory of his mother, a longtime garden club member. The winners were announced by scholarship cochairs Mark and Stevie Meginness at the garden club’s July meeting.
