The Pest Management Foundation announced the first recipient of the New Jersey Pest Management Association Pest Professional Stewardship Scholarship.

This year’s recipient is Antony Iannuzzi of Deptford, N.J. He is a 2022 graduate of Gloucester County Institute of Technology High School, where he simultaneously earned an associate of science degree in administration from Rowan College of South Jersey. He is currently a senior at Rowan University, majoring in both accounting and finance and is working as an intern at Hoffman’s Exterminating as part of the accounting team.

The New Jersey Pest Management Association generously endowed the New Jersey Pest Management Association (NJPMA) Pest Professional Stewardship Scholarship earlier this year. The $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to a graduating high school senior each year in the state of New Jersey entering the field of professional pest management who has a parent or guardian working in pest management.

“We are thrilled to announce Anthony Iannuzzi as the deserving recipient of the inaugural New Jersey Pest Management Association Pest Professional Stewardship Scholarship. Anthony’s dedication to both his academic pursuits and his internship at Hoffman’s Exterminating exemplifies the passion and commitment we hope to encourage in the next generation of pest management professionals. Through this endowed scholarship, we aim to foster the growth of exceptional individuals who will contribute to the advancement of the pest management industry. Congratulations, Anthony, and we look forward to seeing the positive impact you will undoubtedly make in our field.” said William Hoffman, immediate past president of NJPMA and president and CEO of Hoffman’s Exterminating in Mantua, N.J.

To be eligible for scholarship consideration, applicants need to be a student graduating from a high school (with at least 3.0 or higher) located in the State of New Jersey, and entering college, trade school, or certificate program in the field of professional pest management. A parent, guardian or family member must also be working in the pest control industry, and their company must be a member in good standing with the NJPMA.
