Horticulture student Jillian Patrie was the recipient of a scholarship given by the Green Thumb Garden Club of Casselton, ND. For the last five years the group has held a Pie Day at Casselwood Retirement Center in Casselton to raise money for the scholarship. Each piece of pie is sold for three dollars, and the pie sale proceeds are donated to a horticulture student chosen by the NDSU Horticulture faculty. The sale brought in $200 this year.

Patrie is a senior from Moorhead, Minn., with an emphasis in the Production Business option in the Horticulture program. She also works part time at Baker Garden and Gifts in Fargo, is the activities director for the NDSU Horticulture and Forestry Club, and enjoys gardening at her home. Her career plans are to manage a garden center or greenhouse after graduation.
