CHARLESTON, WV (LOOTPRESS) – “The West Virginia Nursery & Landscape Association (WVNLA) announced today five scholarship recipients who will receive $2,500 each through its Marcus W. Rennix Memorial Scholarship program.
The students — all attending West Virginia University (WVU) — will be recognized at the association’s February 21 Winter Symposium in Charleston.
Julie Robinson, WVNLA executive director, said the association considers on a rolling annual basis scholarship funding for West Virginia students studying horticulture, landscape architecture, and nursery and greenhouse management. She said students must be in-state residents who have completed half the required courses in ornamental horticulture or landscape architecture and maintained at least a 2.5 grade point average.
Robinson encourages other students who meet the criteria to apply for the 2025 educational funds. Deadline for submission is September 30, 2024. Information can be found at WVNLA’s website: https://wvnla.org/scholarships/
