Groundskeeper Mary Schrunk, campus services, transfers various plants into new oversize planters installed this week south of Parks Library. The planters contain an assortment of arborvitae, hibiscus, dahlia, lantana, petunias and calibrachoa. The plans for this pedestrian mall for students and campus visitors include tables with seating and several honey locust trees to provide shade. This is another project funded through former President Steven Leath's campus beautification initiative.
