2015 Scholarships

Scholarships Awarded / May 2015

James Martin Associates Proudly Awards Scholarships to Two Deserving Recipients.

The National Association of Landscape Professionals Foundation (formerly PLANET AEF) was created to award scholarships and fund educational activities to help grow the lawn and landscape industry workforce.  Beth Black, a student from Brigham Young University was awarded the Martin Family Scholarship in the amount of $1,000.

Beth has previously worked on the grounds of BYU and is currently researching control for invasive seeds and nitrogen nutrition as it pertains to golf greens. Beth has already received 2 research grants while studying at BYU.

Beth is planning on furthering her studies to include researching integrated pest management and plant pathology.  She hopes one day to work as a professor to encourage more students to look into the “green industry.” It’s clear that Beth Black has a passion for our environment.

The Illinois Landscape Contractors Association (ILCA) awards various scholarships to promote higher education in horticulture and green industry-related courses. Ryan Ochs, a student at Wabash Valley College, in Mt. Carmel, Illinois was awarded the James Martin Memorial Scholarship in the amount of $2,500.

Ryan began his love of plant cultivation at the early age of 8 during his first 4-H horticulture project.  Ryan’s passion has also been fueled by working at his family’s fruit and vegetable operation, where he has gained valuable hands on experience.

For Ryan, horticulture is not just about fruits and vegetables. It’s the soil science, research, turf management, landscaping and so much more that makes him excited about pursuing his degree in the field.

We wish both scholarship recipients a successful future!
