Laura Kantakis Scholarship
The Laura Kantakis Scholarship was created by a group of friends who remember Laura's inspiration, both professional and personal, as evidenced by the programs she created for her customers, her work on developing the WF&FSA "Growing Up With Flowers" program and through her personal commitment to continuous education.
Laura Kantakis was supply manager of Associated Wholesale Florist, Inc., Rochelle Park, N.J.; a past chairman of the WF&FSA Young Executives Committee (now known as the Emerging Leaders Network) from 1993 - 1994; and was named Young Executive of the Year for 1989 and 1990. Laura Kantakis passed away in 2008.
The annual Laura Kantakis scholarship is valued at over $1,000, providing the recipient with the program registration fee, including attendance on the Road Trip, and a two-night hotel stay for the WF&FSA Management Institute.
Applications for the Laura Kantakis scholarship will be accepted until Friday, June 16, 2017. Please apply below and please note you are able to apply for both scholarships if you choose.
