For the second year in a row, Environmental Turf, Inc., was named Turf & Ornamental Company of the Year at the BoardRoom “Excellence in Achievement” Awards. ET President Stacie Zinn is featured on the cover of The Boardroom magazine’s September/October 2009 issue along with winners in other categories.


ESPN’s Jim Kelly, standing in front of Zinn in the cover photo, served as Master of Ceremonies at the awards ceremony and presented her with the crystal trophy.


“The focus for Environmental Turf last year was in helping to educate the golf and private club industry, including golf course architects, superintendents, managers and PGA Professionals at private clubs all over the world, about the innovative ways they can help the environment by grassing or regrassing their golf courses with low water use grasses such as SeaDwarf Seashore Paspalum,” said Zinn. “Winning this award based on those efforts is extremely gratifying. We’re very honored to be chosen as the recipient of this award for the second year running.”
