The South Carolina Greenhouse Growers Association recently announced the naming of a scholarship in honor of Jāderloon® founder Donald F. Looney, Sr. An excerpt from the announcement is below:
“Don’s dedication to the greenhouse industry was immeasurable. His innovative ideas created equipment and supplies that have become standards in our industry. His generosity and willingness to share was known by all, and so many of our members have benefitted from his knowledge.
Don and Jāderloon® are known far beyond Irmo, Columbia, and South Carolina. We are so very proud to have known Don as a businessman, an innovator, and a friend.
Don was respected and beloved by the greenhouse industry and we are honored to be able to name a scholarship after him. The first Donald F. Looney, Sr. memorial scholarship will be given to a Clemson University Horticulture student at the end of this year.”
