Every year, members of the Green Thumb Garden Club of Santa Rosa Beach choose one high school or college student interested in or studying environmental science and award them a $1,000 scholarship.
Alannah Anderson, is a four time recipient of the scholarship.
She's used the money to buy books and housing for college.
"For undergrad, I graduated with an environmental science degree and a GIS certificate,” said Anderson. “And for graduate, I graduated with GIS degree and so that is what I am doing now is GIS."
A majority of the scholarship money comes from the Green Thumb Garden Clubs fundraising efforts.
