If the end of March seemed busy, here’s what’s coming in April:
April 1 is the date of the annual Stream Clean of College Branch, the college’s adopted stream along its eastern border. See Dr. Bond for details.
On March 15, first-year student Ricki Draper and I worked with a number of people on campus and off to submit a grant application to the National Collegiate Honors Council to help fund our community garden in Warnersville. We are still making contacts, and the project is still taking shape, but we should hear this month about whether or not the grant will come.
April 7 is the Inauguration of Dr. Lawrence Czarda as the college’s eighteenth president. Dr. Czarda and his wife Carolyn Chappell have already proved great friends to the George Center for Honors Studies, and we look forward to this celebration of the College’s history and future.
April 16 is our spring canoe trip. Last fall, we canoed a great little section of the Haw River near Saxapahaw. We’ll see where we go this time!
April 19 is our final Food for Thought lunch of the semester. We will be discussing the Honors Thesis and focusing on the more traditional experimental sorts of projects we so often see. (This is also my brother and sister-in-law’s anniversary, so if you see them, wish them well.)
Classes end April 21! Go!
