Marissa Alfiero of Charlestown received the Indian Run Garden Club $1,000 scholarship. It is given annually to a student interested in a horticulture and/or plant science college program. Alfiero is a graduate of Chariho Regional High School and is attending Brown University, where she is studying botany. The outdoors have always fascinated her. In her application she stated that flowers are her happiness and farm-fresh food nourishes her, body and soul. The natural world is more preferable to her than man's material one.
