SHREWSBURY – The Shrewsbury Garden Club recently awarded its $1,000 2022 scholarship to graduating Shrewsbury High School senior Hailey Luke.
Luke had been accepted to multiple colleges as of last month and is planning to major in environmental engineering focusing on classes in areas like climatology and sustainability.
Luke is an honor student with experience in SHS groups including the Helping Hands Club and Food and Health Club. Luke has also volunteered at the Presbyterian Thrift Shop, Andy’s Attic and the Special Olympics.
She has played on the girls varsity tennis team, spending two years as a captain.
“Hailey states in her essay that she’d ‘like to spend her time on Earth doing something worthwhile,’” the Garden Club noted last month. “She feels that she can accomplish that goal with the classes she’s going to take so that she can help preserve the earth for future generations. The Garden Club is proud to help her reach her goal.”
