Who We Are
Jane and Mark Knox TMF have been an inspiration to this industry. Jane serving on the Florist Federal Credit Union Board, as well as on WTNM's and TSFA's Boards and chairing many committees and events for both Associations. . Mark was on the TSFA's Founding Education Committee that developed the Texas Master Florist Certification program, served on the TSFA Insurance Trust, chaired numerous TSFA and WTNM committees and served both TSFA and WTNM as President.. Jack Cross, TMFA shared that he was "honored to say that I was one of those inspired by their willingness to educate and train a young person. My first experience in the floral industry after graduating college was working for Mark Knox Flowers. This experience, along with the passion for the floral industry exhibited by Jane and Mark Knox, put me on the path to owning my own, successful flower shop." Mark and Jane showed that giving back to the industry they love was extremely important to the future success of this industry. It is in this spirit, that Denise and Jack Cross establish the Jane and Mark Knox, TMF Floral Education Scholarship in the amount of $5,000.00 through the Texas Floral Endowment to provide funding for several first time attendees to attend educational events including the TSFA and WTNM conventions. This scholarship will provide a full registration and associated costs, up to $500 per recipient to experience the yearly education events that Jane and Mark Knox so passionately endorsed their entire career. The recipients of this scholarship must utilize the funds within two years of receiving the award.
