2013 Hawaii Chapter / David T. Woolsey Scholarship
Congratulations to Angelica Rockquemore (MLA '14)!
from the Landscape Architecture Foundation Leadership in Landscape webpage:
"Raised in Kaneohe, Oahu, Angelica graduated Magna Cum Laude with Bachelor of Arts degrees in Anthropology, International Studies and Japanese from Pacific University. Having received the honor and support of a Fulbright Fellowship to continue her bachelor’s thesis research on Japanese Garden preservation, Angelica spent one year living and researching gardens in Japan. It was in Japan that she realized how the preservation efforts of Hawai’i’s unique landscapes were in need of creative thought and action. This realization led Angelica to her current Master’s degree studies of Landscape Architecture at the University of Washington. With a research focus of designing outdoor environmental education play spaces for young children based on Native Hawaiian cultural traditions and values, Angelica is determined to return to Hawai’i to not only become a professional landscape architect but to use her education, training and experiences to be a cultural landscape steward for Hawai’i’s environment in the face of urban development."
This scholarship was established in memory of David T. Woolsey, an alumnus of California Polytechnic University and former principal in the firm of Woolsey, Miyabara and Associates. The award provides funds for educational or professional development purposes exclusively to applicants whose permanent residence is Hawaii.
