HEADLINES/CALENDAR
Dale and Liz Deppe established the Endowment Fund
with HRI in 1999 with the belief that bright, well-trained,
qualified people are essential to the green industry and that
backing motivated students plays a vital role in protecting
and growing the industry. Through HRI, the AmericanHort
Foundation acts as the administrator of endowments
that help students to obtain the education necessary to
successfully pursue horticultural careers.
Over the years, the total amount of awards distributed
through the fund is now up to $83,750.
Currently a senior at Michigan State University, Mary Tuski
is working toward her bachelor's degree and plans to pursue
a master's degree in nursery production with a career goal of
working in woody and tree production after she graduates.
Mary is a member of the Michigan State Student Horticulture
Association where she has served as vice president and now
is the president of the organization.
Noah Brown is a junior at North Carolina State University
where he is pursuing a Bachelor of Science in agricultural
business management. After graduation, he hopes to
study agritourism in the Netherlands and eventually plans
to work toward obtaining a management position in the
horticulture industry.
An outstanding student, Amber Lancaster just started
her senior year at the University of Arkansas Fayetteville
and is especially interested in propagation, breeding, and
grafting of fruit trees to find the most disease-resistant
cultivars for Northwest Arkansas. She is currently an
intern at the University of Arkansas in the Plant Pathology
department where she is learning about types of pests
and pathogens that can affect the plants in both field and
greenhouse production.
Jacklyn Stupienski is entering her second year of a 2-year
horticulture program at Naugatuck Valley Community
College in Waterbury, Connecticut. She has received the CT
Horticulture Society Scholarship, and a merit scholarship for
outstanding GPA and achievement. Jacklyn's interests include
design, propagation and growing, and last year she was
accepted into the summer internship program at Monrovia.
After she graduates, she hopes to apply for opportunities that
involve growing, propagation, or sales.
Scholarship applications for 2021 will open in April,
2020. Individuals who are interested in applying for a
scholarship can check the HRI website at www.hriresearch.

of the first ever, miniature Knock Out Rose, The Petite
Knock Out.
A miniature version of the original Knock Out Rose, The
Petite Knock Out delivers a whole new level of versatility
to the rose market. It has the same flowering ability, bright
color and easy maintenance as The Knock Out Rose, now in a
revolutionary, petite size.

Knock Out is
