STMA Honors Students
with Scholarships





The Sports Turf Managers Association, a non-profit, professional association for the men and women who manage sports fields, and The Toro Company have selected three students to honor with the Dr. James R. Watson
Legacy Scholarship.


The Sports Turf Managers Association and The Toro Company have selected three students to honor with the Dr. James R. Watson Legacy Scholarship. The award is a one-time scholarship funded by The Toro Giving Program and STMA's philanthropic arm, SAFE Foundation. The grant honors long-time Toro agronomist, Dr. James Watson, who passed away October 1, 2013.

The three winners are Kevin Hansen (Iowa State University / Ames, Iowa), Chrissie Segars (Oklahoma State University / McBee, S.C.) and Andrew Wilhelm (Purdue University / Plainfield, Ind.). Each will receive a $2,000 scholarship from the SAFE Foundation.

"This is an exceptional opportunity for us to partner with The Toro Company to support three rising stars in sports turf," says Kim Heck, CEO of STMA. "We look forward to monitoring the progress of Kevin, Chrissie and Andrew as they drive our industry for years to come."

Hansen, Segars and Wilhelm are each working toward a degree in sports turf management or a comparable field of study.
