Scholarship Winner 2018-2020
Ignacio Moreno is the second student to be awarded a Mary Brent Wehrli Scholarship from the Desert Horticultural Society of the Coachella Valley.
Ignacio has been working full time in landscape maintenance for 7-1/2 years. He has completed two associate of science degrees at College of the Desert, one in turfgrass management and one in environmental horticulture. He will be continuing his education, with the assistance of our $5,000 scholarship, at Cal Poly Pomona. He plans to become a landscape architect.
At COD he won a competition for a landscape design of the intersection of Highways 111 and 74 in Palm Desert. His plan converts the turf to desert landscape that will have eye appeal and conserve water. Palm Desert is accumulating funds and hopes to complete the project by the end of 2018.
