NHLA Awards 2021 Scholarship


June 2, 2021

I would like to thank our generous members for donating to the NHLA Scholarship fund. With your support, we help deserving students pursue their dream, in the green industry. This year, we had one winner, Georgia Brust, from Salem, NH, who is studying Landscape and Environmental Design at NHTI, Concord’s Community College. She will be graduating in the spring of 2021.

Landscaping has always been her passion. She currently is working at Canobie Lake Park on their grounds department, as the landscape lead. She loves working for an entertainment company because it allows her to create what she calls, “fun” flower beds. She enjoys making the guests happy.

This past fall, she participated in the Natural Resource Stewardship offered by the UNH Cooperative Extension. She has a thirst for knowledge. After graduation, she plans on taking a few more courses, not currently part of her program. Georgia is an outstanding student and is on her way to a successful career. She aspires to someday open her own business.

We look forward to seeing her at future NHLA events.

A special THANK YOU goes out to all who donated to the scholarship fund; we raised $2,640. It makes a real difference in the lives of deserving students!
