Elk River, MN:  Plaisted Companies, Inc. is excited to announce that they have awarded three scholarships, one student of which, will be attending Penn State this coming fall.  Cole Petrick of Benson, Minnesota, was awarded a $1,500 scholarship towards his education at Penn State University.  Petrick is attending Penn State and hopes to obtain a major in Golf Course Turfgrass Management. 

Petrick ranked 30 out of 49 students in his class, was captain of his football team and lettered in both football and golf.  He was awarded the 6-year award, Academic Silver Award and the Academic Silver Team Award for football.  He also competed at the state level for Clay Target.  Cole is an avid volunteer at his church, youth football clinics and youth golf clinics and has participated in multiple food drives. 

When we asked Cole why he thought he deserved this scholarship, his response was “I want to do more than just graduate and get a job.  I want to help improve the game of golf for everyone.”  We know he’ll do big things with his future career as a Golf Course Superintendent!
