Pulliam is from Harrisonville, Mo., and is majoring in horticulture and wildlife management.
Each year, the Master Gardeners of the Ozarks chapter gives a scholarship to a deserving student majoring in horticulture or related subjects.
Each year, 80-plus members of the Master Gardeners of the Ozarks from both Stone and Taney counties work to raise monies for this scholarship for 2010 fundraiser, the chapter sponsored an all-day garden tour and luncheon at Stonebridge.

The Master Gardener Program is a popular and successful statewide volunteer community-service organization administered through University of Missouri Extension. The organization's goal is to train gardeners who are willing to share their knowledge with others. Master Gardeners become volunteers of University of Missouri Extension and donate hours for community educational projects in horticulture.
