TWU receives national recognition for grounds management


DENTON - Texas Woman’s University has received national recognition for its grounds management on the Denton campus as one of 14 universities in the nation to receive a 2010 Green Star Honor Award from the Professional Grounds Management Society (PGMS).

“This award recognizes the efforts put in by our staff, and also TWU’s commitment toward enriching the lives of students, faculty, staff and visitors through well-maintained and preserved green spaces,” said Robert Trevino, TWU supervisor of landscape services.

TWU’s landscape department consists of 22 employees responsible for the year-round maintenance of the 270-acre campus. In addition to landscape maintenance, the department oversees irrigation, greenhouse operations and athletic fields. TWU also received a Green Star Honor Award in 2007.

According to PGMS, the Green Star Awards program brings national recognition to grounds maintained with a high degree of excellence, complimenting other national landscape award programs that recognize outstanding landscape design and construction.

Founded in 1911, PGMS is an individual membership society dedicated to advancing the grounds management profession through education and development. For more information, visit
