Todd Williams Memorial Scholarship
Todd Williams was a past president of ALCC and Bob Cannon Lifetime Achievement Award recipient who we lost way too soon in 2013. He came to Colorado as a student at CSU and built a career in the Denver landscape industry, starting as a laborer and working his way up to become president of Terracare Associates.

Todd Williams’ passing was a watershed moment for the green industry. Collectively, we lost a friend, a leader and a visionary. The industry as a whole was a better place with him in it. Among his many life passions, Todd believed in the future of the industry and worked hard to mentor the next generation – whether those folks were young professionals, college students or even kids still in high school. ALCC was able to memorialize his leadership and contributions via an endowed student scholarship.

Tom Trench Memorial Scholarship
Tom Trench, a past president of ALCC, was known for his positivity and his generosity. He mentored many young landscape professionals and championed them in the industry. Upon his passing in 2021, the many people whose lives he touched chose to remember him with a scholarship endowment. Read more about Tom Trench.

ALCC scholarships allow students to pursue their career goals with a little less financial worry. But the scholarships can also provide encouragement to the students and validate their ambitions. Having the industry support their goals can be almost as important as the financial support.

ALCC’s scholarship application portal is open from November 1 through December 17, 2021.
