As we do every year, David Grover, Corey Petersen, and Montana Barrows attended the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) National Collegiate Landscape Competition (NCLC), which is underway right now at Mississippi State University in Starkville, Mississippi.
In addition to attending the competition and the career fair, David Grover is the chairperson of the NCLC committee and spoke at the event's opening ceremony. If you are interested in seeing his speech you can follow the link here: David Grover NCLC Speech.
This is a phenomenal industry event put on by our trade association to support colleges and universities developing the future talent of our profession. The three-day event includes a career fair where over 80 companies from across the country participate, hiring interns and full-time graduates. The event also includes 45 competitive events that individuals and colleges compete in.
It's an incredible opportunity for companies like Pacific to engage with universities and students. It's also a phenomenal opportunity for students to meet industry companies as they pursue careers in this great profession.
Many of the managers on our staff including David Grover, Corey Peterson, Montana Barrow, Megan Johnson, Molly Rios-Nogales, Matt Silcox, Doug Crimin, Octavio Gonzalez, Mauricio Flores, Nicole Young, and Josh Weismiller attended this event when they were in school.
