Club Wraps up Year with Banquet

The Forestry Club wrapped up a successful 2007-2008 year with their annual banquet this week. Club officers, advisors, staff, and individual students were recognized for their academic achievements and efforts in the forestry program and club activities. The club had a successful year of fundraising to support woodsmen's meets, attendance at conferences, supplies, and other activities--over $8,000 was raised through grants, sponsorships, and t-shirt and firewood sales. Instructor and "event coordinator" Bob Pinkston was recognized with a STIHL Mid-Atlantic Meet road sign that was signed by the club. HCC staff Gene Stano and Scott Page were also recognized for their efforts in making the 2008 Mid-Atlantic Woodsmen's Meet a spectacular success.
