John P. White is remembered for his generous giving spirit as both the Florida Chapter ISA’s Tree Fund Liaison and a dedicated member of the Florida Urban Forestry Council’s Executive Committee as well as for his contributions to the annual Trees Florida Conference. He had a zeal for life and steadfast passion for arboriculture and urban forestry. It is our organizations’ desire that the recipient of this scholarship will reflect John’s passion and continue to carry the torch on behalf of these fields.
The John P. White Memorial Scholarship was established to support education in the arboriculture/urban forestry industry through scholarships in the sum of $1,250.00 per semester for qualifying students. It is hoped that the John P. White Memorial Scholarship will provide deserving students the opportunity to develop into a new generation of dedicated individuals for the arboriculture/urban forestry industry of tomorrow.
