Georgia Northwestern Technical College student Dana Jenkins has received the David Warren Memorial Scholarship.

Ms. Jenkins is a student in the Environmental Horticulture Technician program at the Floyd County Campus in Rome.

The scholarship was established in memory of David Warren, former director of the Horticulture program, and is open to students pursuing a degree, diploma or certificate in the Horticulture program. Mr. Warren died unexpectedly in June 2021, and the first awards were made six months later.

“The David Warren Memorial Scholarship was created to honor his dedication to horticultural education,” said Diane Warren McCarthy, Mr. Warren’s spouse at the time of his passing. “The donations to the scholarships are a tangible expression of the respect and appreciation for his work in education.”

“David loved his role as a teacher,” Ms. McCarthy said. “He was among the best and showed his dedication to his students daily. He would be pleased to have this legacy at GNTC.”

Dr. Heidi Popham, GNTC president, said, “David was an outstanding instructor and leader of the GNTC Horticulture program. He prepared many a student for great careers in the field. It is only fitting that his legacy continue through this scholarship.”
