Albertson College Students Add to Caldwell Landscape with Service Project

2006. 09. 07.

The Albertson College of Idaho class of 2010 is digging in with a service project that will beautify Caldwell.

The first-year students, accompanied by staff, faculty, and returning CofI students will be planting about 100 trees along the Wilson Drainage and Indian Creek Saturday, September 9. The project is part of the First Year Experience and is an opportunity for new students to get to know other members of the campus and the greater Caldwell community.

'Our Mission states that we are a Liberal Arts College that embodies the values of leadership, community, integrity, and service. In a sense, our annual college community service project is a manifestation of all of these values,' Vice President for Academic Affairs Mark Smith said. 'To live our values with integrity, we need to do what we can to enrich the community in which we live. We have the opportunity, with this project and others, to enhance what Caldwell has to offer, not only to our students, but everyone in the region.'

This is the third year Albertson College of Idaho has partnered with the City of Caldwell for the service project. Nearly 125 students, staff, and faculty are expected to participate in this year's project.
