Sports Turf Canada has announced the recipients of two scholarships it sponsors.

The Michael J. Bladon Scholarship has been awarded to Rob Renda, who is currently employed at The Thornhill Club in Thornhill, Ont. After his second season working, he became an assistant in training in the department and is currently enrolled at Humber College in the final semesters of the professional golf management program.

Renda’s goal is to become a high-class superintendent, having been inspired by the team surrounding him at The Thornhill Club. The club offers golf, curling, tennis and athletics.

Fedja Muzur, who has been in the industry the past eight years, is the recipient of the Robert Sheard Scholarship.
