CAB Representatives Receive NACA Honors
During the recent National Association for Campus Activities (NACA) Mid America Regional Conference in Grand Rapids, MI, Maryville’s Campus Activities Board (CAB) received two awards. Peggy Dixon, president of CAB, was given the Mid America Outstanding Undergraduate award. CAB’s graphic designers also won the graphics competition for “Best 3-D Marketing Piece” with the Fall 2010 CAB wall calendar, designed by senior Erica Virgin.
Students Plant Butterfly Bushes
More than a dozen student volunteers from Prof. Tom Bratkowski’s invertebrate biology class planted and mulched four butterfly bushes along the sculptured concrete walls of the campus recycling collection point last month. The butterfly population, especially monarchs, had a difficult year, Bratkowski said. Increasing the nectaring sites on host plants will help support future butterfly populations and encourage local migration activity here, he said.
