Horticulture Faculty Member Featured in Industry Publication


A member of Penn College’s horticulture faculty is featured in the May/June issue of Pennsylvania Landscapeand Nursery magazine, the official publication of the Pennsylvania Landscape and Nursery Association. Carl J. Bower, recipient of a PLNA scholarship while a student at the college, is profiled in a “Where Are They Now?” update about past winners. “The work that we do can be hard, the hours can be long, but there is nothing like doing a job that you love,” Bower says in the interview, which also pays tribute to retired mentor Richard J. Weilminster, a “Master Teacher” and longtime college faculty member; and offers advice to students contemplating a “green” career.
