NDSU Senior to Attend Turf Managers Seminar

Tanner Schoenfelder, an NDSU senior majoring in sports and urban turfgrass management, has been selected to attend the Jacobsen Future Turf Managers Seminar May 23-26, in Charlotte, North Carolina. About 12 students from across the country are selected each year for this outstanding opportunity.

Students are selected for the Turf Managers Seminar based on their status as a graduating senior in a turf-related program of study, adviser recommendation as a potential leader in their future turf career, academic performance, leadership skills and work ethic.

The seminar gives participants an inside look at the industry through educational talks, hands-on experiences and tours, and an opportunity to network with peers and turf professionals. All expenses are paid by Jacobsen, a turf equipment company.

Schoenfelder is from Moorhead, Minnesota. He will intern this summer with Bethpage State Park on Long Island, New York, which will host The Barclays Championship 2016, a PGA Tour event, in August. Schoenfelder’s career goal is to be a general manager at a golf and country club, or a golf course superintendent. His adviser is Deying Li, associate professor in plant sciences and coordinator of the sports and urban turfgrass management undergraduate program.
