Congratulations to Elena Andrews, who was recipient of the Five Seasons Landscape Management Scholarship at Columbus State Community College!
Here is a little bit of what she had to say:
“It is with great honor that I have been awarded the Five Seasons Landscape Management Scholarship from the 2016 National Association of Landscape Professionals Foundation. It has been a little over a year since I made the decision to switch careers from architecture to pursue my passion for landscape design. I enrolled in classes at Columbus State in the spring of 2015 and have embraced every opportunity that has crossed my path. The Five Seasons Landscape Management Scholarship is deeply appreciated on a financial level as a single mother working to pay for a new degree. But more importantly to me, is the validation and encouragement it gives me that I did make the right decision to change direction. I have been fortunate to be able to work part time as a landscape designer while in school and plan to open my own landscape design company, Spruce. I am grateful to Five Seasons for supporting students and their dreams.”- Elena
