Witte, M ’16.</p> <p>The colony’s larger home is Cantigny Golf in Wheaton, Ill., where Witte has been superintendent for the past 21 years. He’s one of a handful of golf superintendents in the United States to add beekeeping to their course responsibilities.</p> <p>The hives are located adjacent to a fairway, which affords Witte an opportunity to talk to golfers about his love for “all things green and growing.”</p> <p><a href="https://northcentralcollege.edu/news/graduate%E2%80%99s-career-buzzes-new-heights" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Academics Leadership Studies Graduate Alumni Homepage Leadership Leadership Studies Scott A.
