College of Western Idaho (CWI) is celebrating a pair of students from its Horticulture Technology program who were recently awarded $750 scholarships from the Idaho Nursery and Landscape Association (INLA). Lindsey Dejuncker and Jacqueline Correnti were chosen for two of three statewide scholarships presented at the INLA Horticulture Expo in January. Dejuncker and Correnti were selected among applicants from the University of Idaho, College of Southern Idaho, and Brigham Young University-Idaho.

Dejuncker, of Boise, and Correnti, from Star, are both in their second year of the program. They were selected by INLA Board members based on applications that considered faculty recommendations, service, and commitment to the horticulture profession. In addition to the program, both students are heavily involved in the Horticulture Club, as well as other volunteer opportunities in the community.

“The CWI Horticulture Technology program is proud of Lindsey and Jacqueline,” says CWI Horticulture Instructor, Dan Schults. “Their selection shows the quality of students in our program. Such recognition by statewide programs like the Idaho Nursery and Landscape Association also gives legitimacy and prestige to the CWI Horticulture Technology program.”
