SGO celebrates Arbor Day in new program
Members of the sophomore, junior and senior classes participated in a campus beautification project by planting trees in the school's courtyard.
On Friday, Jan. 25, the Louisiana School for Math Science and the Arts’s (LSMSA) Student Government Organization (SGO) hosted an Arbor Day celebration in the school’s courtyard.
While Arbor Day in Louisiana is celebrated the third Friday in January, the event was postponed due to inclimate weather.
At the beginning of the ceremony, SGO President Will Heitman (’19) told the story of the first Arbor Day. Following, members of each of the sophomore, junior, and senior classes planted individual fruit trees in the courtyard before enjoying refreshments.
The group hopes to make this an annual event.
