Extension Agent H.R. Scott presents award to Kay Beamer
Kay Beamer received the Monongalia County Master Gardener of the Year award, recognition for 10 years of membership in the organization and was once again inducted into the 100 Club for completion of more than 100 volunteer hours in the 2007-2008 MG year. Kay was a member of the first Master Gardener class held in 1998 and is the only remaining active certified member of that class. She also acted as the Program Committee Chairperson for several years.
Kay is a member of the First Ward Community Association which was responsible for saving the First Ward School yard as green space for the First Ward neighborhoods, thus creating Jack Roberts Park. She helped establish the gardens within the park and, most recently, she and the Master Gardener class of 2008 are working with the park to establish a handicapped accessible garden. She is a member of the Durbannah Garden Club which maintains flower beds within White Park and helped plant the flower beds at the Ronald McDonald House. In addition, Kay is a member of the Morgantown Tree Board, the Audubon Society, the Red Cross, the Wesley Foundation, the WVU Christian Council, and Vice-President of the WVU Credit Union. Even with all of her organizational activities, this busy mother and grandmother always puts her family first.[Snippet Error: This file has been deleted.][Snippet Error: This file has been deleted.][Snippet Error: This file has been deleted.]
