NCNLA awards horticulture scholarships to three students

The North Carolina Nursery & Landscape Association (NCNLA) selected three outstanding candidates to receive scholarships through the NCNLA Horticulture Scholarship program for the 2016-2017 academic year. Each is a highly motivated and deserving individual who has demonstrated great promise for the future of the industry.

Reflecting their long-lasting commitment to recognizing and rewarding future industry leaders around the state, NCNLA developed the NCNLA Horticulture Scholarship to provide full-time students enrolled in 2- or 4-year horticulture programs the opportunity to receive education financial assistance.

This year’s recipients of the NCNLA Horticulture Scholarship are:

  • David Denton, NC State University
  • Daniel Lewis, NC State University
  • Evan Garner, Apex High School

Scholarship recipients are determined through a competitive application process, administered by the NCNLA Board of Directors. Applicants are evaluated by numerous factors including scholastic aptitude and industry potential. Work experience within the industry, leadership ability and financial need are also considered when determining scholarship winners.
