By John Ruberson

Jessica Kivett

Entomology master's degree student Jessica Kivett, advised by professor Raymond Cloyd, was one of six undergraduate and graduate students selected nationally to be a 2014 HortScholar by AmericanHort, which is a consolidation of the former American Nursery and Landscape Association and the OFA — Association of Horticultural Professionals.

AmericanHort Scholars will spend seven days on-site at Cultivate'14 — the nation’s largest horticultural tradeshow/conference event for horticultural professionals — in Columbus, Ohio. HortScholars meet as a group and individually with industry professionals, attend educational sessions, and network at various social events. HortScholars will receive complimentary meals, lodging, an All-Access Pass to Cultivate'14, and a complimentary one-year student membership to AmericanHort.
