Will Hembree Memorial Scholarship

PAX is fundraising for a memorial scholarship in memory of Will Hembree–a passionate plantsman, former PAX Iota Chapter officer, and alumnus of the NCSU Horticultural Science Department. We will be raising funds via a plant raffle during the biannual plant sales. Numerous plants, some rare and uncommon, will be up for grabs. Raffle tickets are $1 and you may enter your tickets for any plant of choice!


Additionally, monetary donations are accepted and can be made using the link below. All donations will go directly toward funding an endowed scholarship for horticulture students at NC State University. Please message us with any questions!

As always, we hope to see all of you there to share our knowledge and passion for horticulture.  Any help with spreading the word about the sale to friends, family, and other enthusiasts is greatly appreciated!

Thanks and happy planting!
