“I look forward to learning from the professionals at R&S Landscaping and am grateful for the opportunity,” Brittney said.
According to a release sent out by R&S, Brittney has been well-prepared for the opportunity. During her time in school, she was secretary of The Penn State Horticulture Club and was a member of The Penn State Horticulture Show Committee and the Phi Alpha Xi Honors Fraternity.
