    Master of Landscape Architecture candidate Alexis Alvey has recently won the $1,000 Jane Vee Memorial Scholarship from the P.E.O. Chapter GT, Marco Island.

    P.E.O. is a philanthropic educational organization where the advancement of women is celebrated by other women. Through scholarships, grants, awards, loans and stewardship of Cottey College women are assisted. Its aim is to motivate them to achieve their highest aspirations, overcome obstacles and gain confidence through P.E.O.’s loving support and encouragement. P.E.O. is headquartered in Des Moines, Iowa and has chapters in all 50 states and throughout Canada as well as groups throughout the world. In the State of Florida, P.E.O. has over 200 chapters. In addition to contributing to the six national philanthropies, Florida also has its own scholarships. Chapter GT, Marco Island, has established a memorial scholarship for Jane Vee, a 50-year member who passed away a few years ago. Jane was an avid gardener, painter, and golfer. This year, P.E.O. awarded the $1,000.00 scholarship in her name to a woman pursuing a career in landscape architecture or a field of study related to gardening, agriculture, or horticulture.
