Industry green grant awarded to landscape major

A Pennsylvania College of Technology student is one of 30 nationwide recipients of a $1,000 grant from the Ohio-based Davey Tree Expert Co.

Samuel J. VanDeLinde, a landscape/horticulture technology: landscape emphasis student from Williamsport, was awarded a Davey Tree Arbor Grant, which provides financial assistance to students enrolled in green-related career fields – including two of Penn College’s curricular areas: landscape/horticulture technology and forest technology.

“Sam is one of the hardest-working students I know,” said horticulture instructor Carl J. Bower Jr., who endorsed VanDeLinde’s grant application. “His performance in class is matched only by his drive and desire to excel in the lab.”
