Landscape Design & Management Team Wins 2nd Place!
Students in the Landscape Design & Management program competed last week in the Ohio Nursery & Landscape Association’s “Landscapers’ Challenge”. KCCC was one of 6 schools chosen to compete. This was the first time for KCCC to participate in the event.
Teams were challenged to take a pre-determined industry drawn landscape plan, interpret it and install it in within a seven-hour time period. During construction, students were observed and judged by a panel of state and nationally certified landscape professionals.
The KCCC placed second in the state with a score of 90/100 points. Their score was ONE point behind the winning team!
Team members include: Matthew Wise, Danville; Monica Adkins and Autumn Bunn, both from Clear Fork Valley; Taylor Jones, Utica; Tara Keys, Centerburg; and Brock Denman, Highland. Matthew Wise served as Captain of the team. Jess Maslar, a member of our local advisory committee, served as the team’s industry consultant.
