The National Wood Flooring Association’s Education and Research Foundation awarded its inaugural wood studies scholarship to Nathan Ryan, a senior at Pleasant Hill High School in Pleasant Hill, Mo.
The $1,000 non-renewable scholarship will be used by Ryan to fund his college studies to advance and improve forestry practices for future generations, according to the trade group.
Ryan will begin a four-year program this fall to study agronomy with a concentration in soil and environmental science at Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kan.
“Nathan exemplifies the attributes and spirit of the wood studies scholarship,” NWFA president and CEO Michael Martin said in a statement. “His high academic achievements, as well as his well-rounded extracurricular activities, demonstrate his commitment to the environment and his future career goals. We applaud his accomplishments to date and are proud to support his future academic ambitions.”
