Arbor Day Foundation Recognizes TCC SE Campus

In its blog entry, “5 Fantastic Arbor Day Observances,” the Arbor Day Foundation recognized Tarrant County Southeast Campus for its annual Arbor Day Barbecue.
More than 1,500 students, faculty and staff attended the event, which meets one of the five Tree Campus USA criterion. Culinary Arts students prepared the food, while Hospitality students organized and served at the event. Garden Club members, along with outside organizations, staffed booths providing information and tips about soil erosion, planting trees and gardening, energy conservation and wind power.
The Art Department held a poster design contest to promote the barbecue and a “Chalk It Up” chalk-painting contest. Additionally, the Speech Team organized a speech contest that covered topics such as tree conservation and global warming.
TCC is one of 15 higher education institutions in Texas to receive the Tree Campus USA recognition for its commitment to establishing and sustaining healthy community forests.
