Three from Grounds Crew Earn Designation

Chuck Meacham, Kenny Dabbs and Jason Phillips may now call themselves Certified Horticulture Professionals after the three members of the Florida Tech grounds crew passed an exam following an eight-week educational program.

The Florida Nursery, Growers and Landscape Association’s Certified Horticulture Program is the industry’s only standard for measuring horticulture knowledge on everything from plant and pest identification to landscape management.

Meacham, Dabbs and Phillips join five other FCHP staffers on the university’s grounds crew. They are Horticulturalist/Manager of Grounds Holly Chichester (certified in 2006) and Carlos Rivera, Jeff Adkins, Jeff Oishi and Erika Cheney (certified in 2014).
