The 2016 Jean Demchak Horsey Scholarship in the amount of $2,000 was presented to Julia Evangelista during the annual Trumbull High School scholarship ceremony on June 1. Julia will be attending UCONN in the fall and majoring in Horticulture.
While at Trumbull High School, she was a member of Creative Minds, FFA, National Honor Society and the Spanish Honor Society. Her community service included assisting the Trumbull Town Republican Committee with fundraising and direct mailings, and volunteering at Stern Village, helping residents clean and maintain their gardens.

In addition, she has started a small business selling succulent plants which she has propagated.

The Nichols Garden Club funds the scholarship with the proceeds from its annual Garden Tour.

This year the tour will be held on Thursday, July 14, and five private gardens will be made available for the public to tour.

Tickets are available for $20, advance purchase through July 9, and $25 from July 10 through day of tour.
