For a third year, NaturaLawn® of America offered high school seniors and college undergraduates across the country the opportunity to win scholarship money towards their higher education by entering an essay contest.
The scholarship, named The Dan Collins Scholarship Award, was established in 2017 in memory of former franchise owner, Dan Collins, who passed away from cancer in 2005. The scholarship currently offers three award prizes: $4,000 for the grand-prize, $1,000 for the first runner-up, and $500 for the second runner-up. This year’s winners are Derrick W. Webb, Carlton Avery Robinson, and Lily Sweet King, respectively.
The Grand-Prize winner is Derrick W. Webb, from Alabama. Derrick currently attends Dillard University in New Orleans. He is a Pre-Med student with a minor in Chemistry.
First runner-up, Carlton Avery Robinson, a high school graduate, is planning on majoring in Bioengineering at the University of Louisville.
Lily Sweet King, from Florida, is the second runner-up. She is a freshman at the University of Mississippi, majoring in Journalism and New Media.
“We would like to sincerely thank all the young adults who took the time to apply for The Dan Collins Scholarship,” said Phil Catron, NaturaLawn President, and Founder. “…Dan Collins’ family will be pleased knowing his legacy continues to impact so many.”
