Public event takes place Tuesday morning

Northeastern Junior College’s campus has undergone a major facelift over the last two years with the addition of numerous beautification projects.  Most recently, a Colorado Garden and Home Show’s Andrew Pierce Memorial Grant was combined with money from generous community donors to make these campus improvements possible. The campus will celebrate the completion of current beautification projects with a Grand Opening and Campus Botanical Walk to take place this next Tuesday. The walk, which will be led by those involved in completing the landscaping, including Kimberly Harford of Country Garden, who oversaw the design of the areas, will take place on September 18th at 9:30 a.m.

Open to the public, those who would like to get a first-hand look at the newly planted areas on campus should meet at the Tennant Art Gallery in the east end of Hays Student Center at 9:30 am.  A short program will be held and refreshments served, immediately followed by a Campus Botanical Walk.  The walk will cover several areas of campus and is expected to take approximately 45 minutes.  Representatives from the Colorado Garden and Home Show will be in Sterling to view the projects they helped fund.

Questions about this event may be directed to Gail LaForce, Northeastern Junior College Foundation Director at 521-6603.
