Ball State University student Tanner Prewitt of Seymour has received three national and regional scholarships.
Prewitt, a landscape architecture major and honors college student, received a National Garden Clubs Inc. scholarship. He was this year’s Garden Club of Indiana’s chosen applicant and was one of only 43 students nationally to receive the award. This will be Prewitt’s third year as The Garden Club of Indiana Scholarship winner, and he was invited to present at the club’s state convention.
The senior and Trinity Lutheran High School graduate also received the Katharine M. Grosscup Scholarship in horticulture and the Frits Loonsten Memorial Scholarship, which are regional awards in landscape architecture and related fields.
Recently, he participated in an immersive learning studio where he and other students co-designed installations for a community garden in the Whitely neighborhood in Muncie. The students completed benches with attached flower boxes and developed a master plan for the project to continue into future semesters.
Prewitt is the president of the student chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects and president of the Student Honors Council.
After graduation, Prewitt hopes to work in a landscape architecture or design-related firm, where he can strengthen his skills as a designer.
