The new online presence will help the foundation spread its message.

| October 4, 2011

The Musser International Turfgrass Foundation has launched a website, www.musserfoundation.org, to make information about the group’s mission and graduate student award program easily available to all interested parties.

Frank Dobie, the general manager/superintendent of The Sharon Golf Club (of Ohio) and president of the Musser Foundation Board, said the site will make it easier for turf doctoral candidates and others in the industry to find out more about the organization and the process of applying for the prestigious Musser Award of Excellence. “We’re pleased that we’re now able to effectively spread the word about the foundation to more potential applicants, supporters and those with an interest in the history of turfgrass research,” said Dobie.

In addition to information on the mission, history and application process, the site also includes a list of previous Award of Excellence recipients dating back to 1989. Many of the past recipients are now leading agronomic researchers and educators at universities and other institutions around North America.

The foundation has also recently created a Facebook page (Musser International Turfgrass Research Foundation) and a Twitter feed (@musserturfgrass) to allow individuals to keep up to date on the group’s activities.

The Musser International Turfgrass Foundation is dedicated to fostering turfgrass management as a learned profession. Named in memory of turfgrass scientist H. Burton Musser, the foundation acknowledges and rewards those individuals who have demonstrated excellence in the doctoral phase of their turfgrass science education and research.
