Shanty Creek Resort Superintendents As Executives (SAE) Scholarship Award

21 Sep 2022 11:36 AM | Anonymous

Alex Piotrowski of Shanty Creek Resort (right) presented a scholarship check to Michigan Turfgrass Foundation President, Curt Boak at Thursday's MSU Turf Student Icebreaker Day.  The new scholarship will be added to the current opportunities offered by the Michigan Turfgrass Foundation including the Norman W. Kramer, Robert Hancock, Kenyon Payne and Sports and Commercial Turf scholarships.

Shanty Creek Resort is a four seasons resort in Bellaire Michigan. SCR recognizes the variety of skills that turf management graduates possess- agronomy, human resources, equipment operation and maintenance, financial analysis and budgeting, irrigation, construction, etc. We are looking to the future of not only the resort industry but more specific the development in the education of young turf management students. We believe that the skill set that most turf graduates possess lend to a greater potential in the abilities to adapt, problem solve and persevere in an array of situations.

The Superintendents As Executives (SAE) scholarship will be awarded to a student that not only excels in the turf management program but also show an interest in a secondary concentration in business or a related field. The goal of this scholarship is to reward-students who show the aptitude and ambition to grow in our industry in leadership positions beyond turf management. SCR wants to inspire future turf graduates to progress into positions as Directors of Agronomy, General Managers and Executives.
