The Earth Week Festival kicked off on Monday, April 18, with a Tree Planting Ceremony in front of Walker Hall. The tree planting began the university's celebration of Earth Week and also celebrated Arbor Day.
As Dr. Jeffries said "A tree is more than just visually and psychologically appealing, it is a way to state our hope for the future. As it cleans the air and provides a home of a myriad of critters it will also be a symbol of life and our faith in a better future for all people, and the earth itself."
