KCCD Leadership Academy Plants Trees for the Future
May 14, 2010
Employees of the Kern Community College District Leadership Academy
recently participated in Garden Fest 2010 held in Bakersfield on April 24.
The group comprised of leaders from all three colleges in the District
included: Tammy Kinnan from Cerro Coso Community College; Stewart Hathaway
from Porterville College; and Tim Carroll and Susan McQuerrey from
Bakersfield College. The theme for this year's Earth Day event was "Garden
Fest Green and Clean". The KCCD Leadership Team raised over $600 in
their efforts to raise awareness of environmental issues and to demonstrate
how easy going green can be.
"Trees for the Future" was the theme for their project. Renowned
Architect, Frank Lloyd Wright once said "The best friend on Earth of man is
the tree. When we use the tree respectfully and economically, we have
one of the greatest resources of the Earth." The Team thoroughly
enjoyed the project and the opportunity to show their willingness to do
their part to protect and sustain the natural environment. "Trees will
be planted at all three colleges to promote responsible stewardship of our
natural resources," stated Kinnan.
The Kern Community College District's Leadership Academy is designed to
prepare employees for management and supervisory roles and to learn more
about the Kern Community College District and the California Community
KCCD Leadership Team (l to r) – Tammy Kinnan, Cerro Coso Community College;
Susan McQuerrey and Tim Carroll, Bakersfield College; and Stewart Hathaway
from Porterville College.
