PLANET AEF names newest ambassadors


The Professional Landcare Network (PLANET), based in Herndon, Va., has named the newest PLANET Academic Excellence Foundation (PLANET AEF) Ambassadors. Each of the ambassadors pledged $25,000 to the foundation, which awards scholarships to students enrolled in landscape contracting and/or horticulture programs at two-year or four-year colleges and universities:

  • Lifescape Colorado and the Hupf family, Denver;
  • Marty Grunder, Miamisburg, Ohio;
  • Schill Grounds Management and Jerry and Jim Schill Family Scholarship, North Ridgeville, Ohio;
  • The LaurelRock Co., Wilton, Conn.; and
  • The Todd Williams Memorial Scholarship, Denver (through the ALCC/ AEF State Association Partnership)

“On behalf of PLANET AEF, I want to thank our newest Ambassadors for their generous support of the next generation of industry leaders and for helping us to reach further milestones,” said PLANET AEF President Tom Fochtman, LIC.

PLANET AEF is halfway through its five-year campaign, developed by the PLANET AEF Board of Directors, to raise the fund balance from $2 million to $5 million.
