The Board of Directors of the Cape Cod Landscape Association is pleased to announce that they are awarding a total of $9,000 in scholarships for 2018. The Mike Stacy Memorial Scholarships are awarded to Cape Cod students who will pursue a career in the green industry.

The CCLA scholarship fund is in honor of Mike Stacy, a native of Cape Cod, active member of CCLA and owner of Mike Stacy Landscaping. Mr. Stacy passed away in August of 1989. Lacking a formal education in horticulture, Mr. Stacy was acutely aware of the importance of continually expanding his knowledge and appreciated the educational and professional opportunities gained through his involvement with CCLA. It is fitting that others be afforded the opportunity to further their education and careers through this fund in his name.
Funds for the scholarships are raised by CCLA’s Annual Golf Tournament to benefit the Mike Stacy Memorial Fund. This year’s Golf Tournament is set for Saturday, October 13, 2018, at the Hyannis Golf Club. Sponsorships are available. Registration for the tournament will open soon. Cape Cod Landscape Association is a 501 c3 – registered non-profit.
