2019 LAGC SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS

Congratulations to our 2019 LAGC Scholarship Winners, Daniel Hurt and Trevor Cannavo

 

The 2019 LAGC Los Angeles Area College Scholarship was awarded to Daniel Hurt and Trevor Cannavo, who are horticulture students at Mt. San Antonio College, a community college located in the Los Angeles suburb of Walnut, CA.


Daniel Hurt and Trevor Cannavo have exhibited excellent academic achievement in their studies and have moving personal stories that show perseverance and hope.


Daniel is a veteran with two tours of duty in Iraq with the United States Army. He was injured as a result of his military experience and with the guidance and help of his wife and family, he found healing and his calling in horticulture at MT SAC. For Daniel, a scholarship means he will have access to additional books, tutoring and adaptive technologies that are not available through school or the Veterans Affairs Administration.


Trevor found his calling at MT SAC in horticulture with an emphasis in regenerative farming and sustainability in the study of soil and plant science. Trevor has had to deal with a severely incapacitating joint degeneration disease that put an end to his future plans and hopes for over ten years as he fought to control and overcome the disease. Trevor also found healing in being in horticulture, making things grow with his own hands. This scholarship means that he will be able to complete his degree.

2018 LAGC SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS

Congratulations to our 2018 LAGC Scholarship Winners, Victoria 'Tori' Kramer and Kristina Price

 

The 2018 LAGC Los Angeles Area College Scholarships were awarded to Victoria 'Tori' Kramer and Kristina Price, who are horticulture students at Mt. San Antonio College, a community college located in the Los Angeles suburb of Walnut, CA.

Victoria studied Ornamental Horticulture, but has now set her goal to help people with autism and PTSD to experience a positive and healing effect through Horticultural Therapy.

Kristina is focusing on agriculture, and to convey her sentiment: "My heart has always been in agriculture. It's like a rush that comes over me whenever I see a field of strawberries or a grove, or even something simple as a friend's backyard garden bed. It literally excites me - I don’t believe I chose this field, it was a calling - it chose me."
