IVM Good Stewards Scholarship Winners Announced

CALGARY, AB – (October 6, 2014) – Three students working in industrial vegetation management (IVM) for the summer semester have each been awarded $1,000 IVM Good Stewards Scholarships from Dow AgroSciences.

The winners are:

Andrew Beney – Waterloo, ON

Scholarship Winner Andrew Beney
Adam Moszynski – West St. Paul, MB

Scholarship Winner Adam Moszynski
Stacy Berry – Stoney Plain, AB

Scholarship Winner Stacy Berry

“Industrial vegetation management is a huge task across Canada and we need enthusiastic, educated young people entering the industry,” says Mark Alberts, Product Manager for Vegetation Management with Dow AgroSciences. “This scholarship is meant to encourage young people to consider this field as a rewarding career.”

The students applied by answering the following three questions:

  • Why did you decide to spend your summer working in vegetation management?
  • Describe a positive experience you had this summer while working in vegetation management.
  • What is the most important challenge facing vegetation management today?

Andrew Beney is studying mechanical engineering, Adam Moszynski is studying geography and computer science and Stacy Berry is completing a degree in crop science. Although each of the three winners joined vegetation management teams with different backgrounds, each left with a greater appreciation for the important role of land stewardship and controlling vegetation in industrial settings.
