Horticulture Students Awarded Scholarships From State Association

Two students at Pennsylvania College of Technology have each received $5,000 scholarships from the Pennsylvania Landscape & Nursery Association Foundation and will be publicly acknowledged at a late-winter industry event.

Recipients Tiffany E. Griffie, of Newville, and Brandon T. Graby, of Fredericksburg, are both enrolled in the two-year landscape/horticulture technology: landscape emphasis major in the college’s School of Transportation & Natural Resources Technologies.

“Tiffany and Brandon have both demonstrated excellence in the classroom and in the field, so it’s nice to see that their hard work is being rewarded by the foundation,” horticulture instructor Carl J. Bower Jr. said.

PLNA has invited this year’s scholarship winners to its March 2 membership meeting and recognition event at the Hershey Country Club.

Guest speakers will include Pennsylvania Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding (whose son, Elliot C., is a May 2016 graduate of Penn College’s landscape/horticulture technology program). There will also be roundtable discussions addressing issues facing business managers and owners, awards for professional achievement, and networking opportunities between the students and major players in the commonwealth’s green industry.
