Delilah Onofrey has been with America in Bloom since its inception, when she used her platform as editor of Greenhouse Grower magazine to rally the floriculture industry to invest in launching AIB as a community revitalization and beautification program. In addition to being an AIB founder and past board member, she chaired AIB’s Awards Selection Committee and helps out with projects and as an ambassador. Delilah started out in community journalism as a reporter for the Kent-Ravenna Record-Courier after earning her bachelor’s of arts in journalism at Kent State University. Engaging with the cities for AIB then inspired her to complete her master’s in urban planning at Cleveland State University. Delilah now represents Suntory Flowers in North America and focuses on turning up the flower power! She has never missed an AIB awards symposium and looks forward to this annual reunion of kindred spirits.
