Horticulture student receives $1,000 national scholarship


Drew J, MarshA landscape/horticulture technology student has been awarded $1,000 from the National Association of Landscape Professionals, which canceled its National Collegiate Landscape Competition that was scheduled March 18-21 at Michigan State University.

Drew J. Marsh, of Marble, enrolled in the major’s plant production emphasis, received the R.M. Landscape and Lemcke Family Scholarship by mail after the COVID-19 outbreak prohibited him from accepting it in person.

Marsh recently accepted an offer from The Walt Disney Co. in Florida as a plant science intern in its agricultural sciences department.

The association will offer a live, online NCLC event to affected students and faculty from 1-4 p.m. April 7-8. The virtual gathering will feature a career fair, workshops and other educational content, and will be free to participants.
