The scholarships awarded to Kelsey R. Bromm, of Fountainville, and Matthew D. Lowe, of Lancaster honor the students’ academics, ability to apply knowledge gained to real-life situations, personality and willingness to continue in the green industry.

Lowe is enrolled in the landscape/horticulture technology: landscape emphasis major and Bromm in the landscape/horticulture technology: plant production emphasis major. Both plan to graduate in May 2012.

Carl J. Bower Jr., a horticulture instructor in the School of Natural Resources Management and a member of the PLNA Board of Directors, was on hand for the awarding of the scholarships.

The Harrisburg-based PLNA Foundation provides resources to encourage research, reward scholarship, and promote the values and benefits of ornamental horticulture.
