Gavin Leuenberger - Northwestern Michigan College & Michigan State University


Gavin Leuenberger was selected as the first recipient to receive financial support to pursue a joint program in Landscape Management offered through a partnership between Michigan State University (MSU) and Northwestern Michigan College (NMC). The specialized training partnership allows students to earn a certificate from the MSU Institute of Agricultural Technology (IAT) while working toward an Associate’s Degree from NMC. The program provides training for students to select, use, and manage landscape plants and lawns. Students obtain a working knowledge of plant growth, development, and identification which prepares them for careers in the green industry.
