WOOSTER, Ohio, Nov. 8, 2010 – The College of Wooster’s
grounds department has received two 2010 Green Star Awards from the
Professional Ground Management Society, one for Andrew Turf Field and one for
the landscaping around Gault Manor. The merit awards were presented at the
organization’s annual banquet in Louisville, Ky., last week.
Green Star Awards are offered in 15 categories, covering all
types of private, public commercial and industrial landscapes. They are
presented to recognize grounds maintained with a high degree of excellence, and
the individual efforts that go into maintaining them.
In 2007, the college’s grounds department received the
society’s highest honor, the Green Star Grand Award, for the landscape plan
executed in conjunction with the renovation of Kauke Hall.
“We hear from visitors almost every day that The College of
Wooster has a beautiful campus, meticulously maintained,” said President Grant
Cornwell. “This is due entirely to the vision and standards of Beau Mastrine, director of campus grounds, and the care and expertise of the staff who works with him. To a person, they take great personal pride in the campus, in every season.”
The College of Wooster is an independent liberal arts
college, nationally recognized for an innovative curriculum that emphasizes
mentored, independent research. Each Wooster senior works one-on-one with a
faculty adviser to create an original research project, written work,
performance or art exhibit. Founded in 1866, the college enrolls approximately
1189 Beall Avenue, Wooster, Ohio 44691. (330) 263-2000
