Student-Led Library Beautification Project

| April 23rd, 2014 | Comments Off

Kenzie Threlkeld (Freshman, English) developed and led a project to beautify the back garden of the library for her final project in Prof. Ted Garner’s BA223 Principles of Leadership class. Kenzie, who is also a work-study student at the library, thought of beautifying the library garden as a way to make a lasting impact on campus. With the help of freshmen Nancy Benitez and Ashton Mosteller and librarian Linda Kern, Kenzie worked throughout the week weeding, raking, and planting to create a lovely view for patrons studying by the window. When asked how this project helped her learn about leadership, Kenzie stated, “I think an important part of leading is being willing to work beside those that follow you.” We appreciate Kenzie taking the time and initiative to organize and carry out such an expansive project during final exams week. Great work!
