Stars and Stripes Winner!

Congratulations to Marc Moran, CSFM, and his turfgrass students at Atlee High School for being the Stars and Stripes Winner again this year with their field design! Their outstanding work garnered almost 700 votes, earning them this well-deserved recognition.

As a result of their victory, Marc has been awarded a complimentary registration to SFMA’s 2024 Conference and Exhibition in Daytona Beach. Notably, his winning design will be showcased at the event, further highlighting their talent and achievements.

Marc has served as the Agriculture/Turf Science teacher at Atlee High School for the last 25 years. He holds a BS in Agricultural Education from Virginia Tech and pursued further education at Penn State University. Notably, Marc, alongside two other teachers, played a pivotal role in developing Virginia’s inaugural Turf Science Curriculum back in 2001. Since then, this program has consistently attracted between 40 and 60 students, with close to 60 enrolled in the current year, proving its enduring success.

Kudos to Marc Moran and his dedicated students for their exceptional contributions to the field of turfgrass and agriculture education!
