Nearly $40,000 Awarded in AFE Scholarships

Edward Tuinier Memorial Scholarship - $4,600
Recipient: Ben Harcey, Michigan State University

Harcey, a senior studying horticulture, has had a love of agriculture since working on his grandfather's farm and starting his own small landscaping business when he was 14. "My career goals are to create and install landscapes with both a near and long-term perspective in regards to the landscape's form, function and integrity," he said.

Ed Tuinier, owner of Post Gardens, loved the greenhouse business, building his firm to one of the top 50 U.S. companies and inspiring his children, all of whom work in one of the two Post Gardens locations. A graduate of Michigan State University, Tuinier was a major benefactor of the MSU horticulture program and demonstration gardens. The Tuinier Scholarship is awarded to sophomore, junior or senior undergraduate students enrolled in the floriculture program at MSU.
