County College of Morris Professor Jan-Marie Traynor, Randolph resident and chair of CCM’s Landscape and Horticultural Technology Department, has been elected Vice President of the New Jersey Nursery and Landscape Association (NJNLA) for 2010. She is only the second woman to hold this position in the 95-year history of the association and the first educator to be elected as an officer. Founded in 1915, the organization represents landscape contractors, landscape designers, landscape maintenance contractors, retail garden centers, as well as wholesale production nurseries. Professor Traynor will ensure that the state chapters and committees provide professional development opportunities for all members.
The NJNLA established the NJNLA Education Foundation which, in turn, has set up the Ronald Enyingi Scholarship Fund. This is an endowed fund established in memory of Ron Enyingi, past president of NJNLA, who was a member of the CCM Landscape and Horticultural Technology Program Advisory Committee. The scholarship is awarded annually to the student pursuing a degree in Landscaping at the County College of Morris who best exemplifies the high standards that Enyingi always adhered to both personally and professionally.
