Old shrubs and a crumbling sign were removed while new shrubbery was planted. Students at E-Tech had the opportunity to assist with this venture.
Students in Earl Mashburn’s class, as well as some from Clark Dixon’s group, assisted with the project.
E-Tech director Christy Moore said these students also installed a sprinkler system for the area as well as ran electrical power down to the corner. This enabled the center to display the beginning phase of a Christmas display designed by Tim Seals’ Construction students. Moore noted that all of the hard work paid off when the Ashville Garden Club brought the center a Beautification Award.
“We were so pleased and honored that the community took the opportunity to recognize the hard work our students have put forth,” said Moore. “We are also pleased to improve the look of our campus for the sake of all of our communities and the students who participate in our programs. It is truly a mark of distinction.”
