Tennessee Wesleyan Junior Organizes Arbor Day Tree Planting

Friday, April 05, 2013

Tennessee Wesleyan College Junior Kimberly Key has organized an Arbor Day tree planting on TWC’s campus and hopes that TWC students, faculty and staff, as well as local Athens community members, will gather together on campus on April 24, for the event. A Magnolia tree will be planted behind Durham Hall at 12 p.m.

A nursing major with minors in business and servant leadership, Ms.

Key has organized the tree-planting as a final project for her servant leadership minor.

“I minored in servant leadership because giving back to my community has always been important to me,” said Ms. Key, who serves as the service captain for TWC’s women’s soccer team. “I have had so many opportunities to volunteer and make a difference in my community because of Tennessee Wesleyan’s servant leadership program.”

The Magnolia tree that Ms. Key and TWC grounds officials will be planting will replenish an on-campus area where fallen trees were lost during recent storms and tornadoes that have come through Athens in the past couple of years.

“I chose tree planting as my final service-learning project because I heard there was a need for it on campus,” said Ms. Key. “TWC keeps beautiful grounds for its students and I want to make sure that future students have the opportunity to study and learn on the same gorgeous campus that I have.”
