Mr. Randy Zidik, representing E.H. Griffith Inc., congratulates
 Mr. James Cross on receiving the first annual E.H. Griffith Scholarship.

E.H. Griffith created an endowment at Penn State, the proceeds from which will be used to fund this annual scholarship. E.H. Griffith began in 1931, when Elliot Howard Griffith went to Pittsburgh with Toro Commercial Equipment and Milorganite Fertilizer and started a distributorship in Eastern Pittsburgh. Today, E.H. Griffith, Inc. using Toro and Milorganite as its backbone has developed into a distributorship of many products and services devoted to the Commercial Turf Market including Golf Courses, Landscapers, Lawn Care Operators, Municipalities, Schools, Athletic Fields, and Estates.

This year's E.H. Griffith's scholarship winner is Mr. James Cross. Mr. Cross graduated near the top of his class and has been involved in plant breeding research as an undergraduate student at Penn State. Mr. Cross will be continuing his education, pursuing an M.S. in turfgrass breeding from Rutgers University.

Everyone in the Penn State Turf Project wants to congratulate Mr. Cross and express their sincere appreciation to E.H. Griffith for their support of Penn State Turfgrass Science Students.
