Phillips Horticulture Scholarship

Rose and Ed Phillips’ story is a love story like no other. Their first date was in 1973. Ed knew that very night that this lady was the one he wanted for the rest of his life. Married in 1975, these two remarkable people went on to share a life of love, many friendships, and a great adventure together. To read Rose’s “Things I Remember About Ed” – written in her own handwriting, is to understand a little about the love and devotion Rose and Ed had for each other.

The Rose and Ed Phillips Horticulture Scholarship Endowment is a legacy that celebrates the love and devotion of Rose Kathryn Phillips & Edward E. Phillips. It is a testament to this special couple who have touched so many people’s lives.

This endowment will be used to provide scholarships for undergraduate students enrolled in the Department of Horticultural Science in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.
