Thanks to all the EEGS students and faculty who participated in the NCCU Earth Day Observance on Monday, April 23rd. We appreciate that you took time from your busy schedules to attend the evening Rap Contest and provide support. We are especially grateful to our brave rappers, Dr. Garrett Love (The Love Connection), Alexandra Valladares (The Latin Lady – 2nd Place), Victoria Jones (The Earth Queen – 3rd Place ) , and my grandchildren, Ollie and BJ along with Kristina Davis and Sierra Gilliam (The Recyclables – First Place) were awesome. The theme “Leave No Waste Behind” resonated strongly.
“When Recycle Meets the Runway” by NCCU Human Science Major, Albert Cobb, featured models wearing gorgeous designs from recycled products i.e., magazine pages, newspaper, drink can tabs, paper and plastic plates. Thank you to our judges, Mrs. Joyce Murphy, Jay Banks and Dr. Anderson, to Jessica Barnwell for manning our table at the fair and to Patricia Cline-Thomas for taking the wonderful photos.
