Tiller became a member recently during WCBGC’s Summer Programming. 

“Being awarded Youth of the Month was such a surprise and made me feel really special,” Tiller said. “I loved the encouragement I got during Master Gardener’s Class and it helped me to believe in myself.”

Tiller was selected for her growth since coming to the Club and her “never giving up” attitude.

“Tileauna was reluctant to join the Gardening Club. She would tell me that she could not do it. But one day she came over smiling with fresh vegetables in hand and was so proud to show off her eggplant,” Lynn E. Hill, WCBGC Director shared.“She looked at me, hands out and said, ‘Look what I did!’  The programs we offer our members definitely have a positive impact on their lives.”

Lynn E. Hill, WCBGC Director, shared that Tileauna engages in every activity with enthusiasm.  

“Her exceptional ability to adapt to a new environment is amazing,” he added.
