Kwantlen student honoured
Kwantlen Polytechnic University student Grant Steinberg is one of 30 students from across North America to win a $500 Jacobsen Turfgrass Scholarship. The scholarships are awarded to students entering their final year in a full-time turfgrass management program.
“I have a rich background in all areas that are golf course related, and this program seemed like a necessity in my pursuit to become a true golf-industry professional,” said Steinberg.
“Winning this scholarship is a humbling honour and to be recognized for my achievements and hard work fuels me to continue to strive towards my goals with an added sense of confidence, as well as a lowered amount of stress on the pocket book.”
“Grant is entering his final year of Kwantlen’s two year turfgrass management diploma program, with exemplary attendance, punctuality, participation and attitude,” said Stan Kazymerchyk, an instructor in the school’s turfgrass management program.
“He shows remarkable skill as a problem solver and is showing great promise as incoming Turf Club president. Grant is a skilled golfer, a caring family man and appears to have a bright future in our industry.”
Jacobsen Turfgrass Scholarship candidates submitted essays and professor recommendations to be considered for the scholarships..
In Kwantlen’s turfgrass management diploma program students learn how to manage the largest green spaces in communities and are involved in the ongoing development of the turf management field lab.
