Laura Kantakis Scholarship

The Laura Kantakis Scholarship was created by a group of friends who remember Laura's inspiration, both professional and personal, as evidenced by the programs she created for her customers, her work on developing the WF&FSA "Growing Up With Flowers" program and through her personal commitment to continuous education. 

Laura Kantakis was supply manager of Associated Wholesale Florist, Inc., Rochelle Park, N.J.; a past chairman of the WF&FSA Young Executives Committee (now known as the Emerging Leaders Network) from 1993 - 1994; and was named Young Executive of the Year for 1989 and 1990. Laura Kantakis passed away in 2008.  

The annual Laura Kantakis scholarship is valued at over $1,000, providing the recipient with the program registration fee and a two-night hotel stay for the WF&FSA Management Institute.

To apply for the 2015 Laura Kantakis scholarship, nominees should send a letter indicating why they would like to attend the 2015 WF&FSA Management Institute.  A representative from the applicant's company must also submit a letter detailing the candidate's accomplishments. Both should be sent under one cover letter. Mail to: WF&FSA, 105 Eastern Ave., Suite 104, Annapolis, MD 21403; Fax to: (410) 263-1659; or Email: by June 15, 2014.
