Miami Dade Honors Montgomery with Award
Montgomery has been involved with Miami Dade College’s Service Learning Program since 2010. Ossie Hanauer, Director of Service Learning at Miami Dade College, and Theresa Pahl-Belitsky, Service Learning Coordinator at Kendall Campus, presented the award to Tracy Magellan, Outreach Manager at Montgomery Botanical Center (see photo of Tracy Magellan receiving the award in behalf of Montgomery Botanical Center from Ossie Hanauer).
Students have been using the concepts they learn at Miami Dade College in the nursery at Montgomery Botanical Center helping MBC care for its youngest plants.
In 2013, Montgomery Botanical Center’s collaboration with Miami Dade College was highlighted in the “Engaging College Students in the World of Public Gardens” issue of Public Garden, the Journal of the American Public Gardens Association (APGA).
The Service Learning program has exposed young horticulturists to Montgomery Botanical Center and has given MBC the opportunity to train and develop a new generation of horticulturists.
“In appreciation for outstanding contributions to Miami Dade College and Miami-Dade County. Your leadership and commitment have made a difference in our community.”
