Parkland Takes High Honors at State Floral Contest

Students and graduates in Parkland College's Horticulture program earned top honors at the 2014 Illinois State Florists’ Association’s Floral Design Contest in Springfield, Illinois.

Eight Parkland students competed at the event, guided by Parkland floral design instructor Trisha Locke, AIFD, CFD, ICPF. Locke, herself a Parkland graduate, teaches the college’s Floral Design I and II (HRT 130/230) classes.

"All of the students who competed gained valuable experience; they all did a good job on their designs and put their work on display to be seen by many," Locke said. "Parkland has a strong commitment to providing professional development opportunities for its students and is unique in helping pay for its students to compete in such events." (full story)
