Branching Out

Evergreen seedlings are held aloft by excited schoolchildren in the first-grade class of Barbara Stopper ...

... and by the third-graders of Brenda Kremser.

First- and third-graders at St. John Neumann Regional Academy’s elementary campus got an Arbor Day visit from a Penn College horticulture instructor on Friday, along with a take-home project to nurture. Carl J. Bower Jr. (who also provided the photos) gave a presentation on the importance of trees and handed out Norway spruce seedlings to pupils and their teachers. The seedlings came from the tree farm of Justin Shelinski, laboratory assistant for horticulture in the School of Transportation & Natural Resources Technologies, who donated them for the observance.

Excellent idea and effort by Instructor Bower and Lab Assistant Justin Shelinksi. They have both given me guidance and inspiration in my future aspirations in the horticulture industry. Thank you.
