Congratulations to Tracey Johns, winner of the 2022 Jake Keller Scholarship Award. The presentation was made at the joint Friends & National Arboretum Canberra end-of-year event on 13 December 2021.
The Scholarship is named after Jake Keller, who was a passionate educator over many years in New Zealand and Australia (Sydney and Canberra).
Jake became a Foundation Member of the National Arboretum Canberra in February 2013. The financial contributions of this program helps support the National Arboretum Canberra grow into one of the world’s great arboreta; a place of outstanding natural beauty, community amenity and scientific benefit.
Jake would be thrilled to know this scholarship linking two of his passions - the National Arboretum Canberra and education - has been created in his name. The Jake Keller Scholarship provides an opportunity for a CIT Horticulture student to undertake internship work at the National Arboretum Canberra with the horticulture team.
