NDSU Sports and Urban Turfgrass Management senior Tanner Schoenfelder has been selected to attend the Jacbosen® Future Turf Managers Seminar to be held May 23-26, 2016 in Charlotte, North Carolina. Nationally, about twelve students are selected each year for this prestigious 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 Future Turf Managers 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, MN and has secured an internship this summer with Bethpage State Park on Long Island, NY, which will host The Barclays Championship 2016, a PGA Tour Playoff event, in August. Schoenfelder’s long-term career goal is to be a general manager at a golf and country club, or a golf course superintendent. His adviser is Dr. Deying Li, associate professor in plant sciences and coordinator of the Sports and Urban Turfgrass Management undergraduate program.
