Arroyo High School Garden Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

Students of Arroyo High School welcomed friends family and community members to their official ribbon cutting ceremony. The event took place the morning of Saturday May 20th, despite the heat. Students were honored to give a garden tour, share their experiences with fellow students, teachers and administrators. A representative from one of the gardens funding companies HMC Architects came and talked to students about the importance of what they had accomplished. The Principal and superintendent spoke about the project and how it began. The culinary arts professor will be planning to incorporate all of the harvest this summer into her classes. Students gave a special thanks to teachers Jennifer Swanson and Harry Hwong for all their hard work in facilitating the garden club and ordering materials. Many of our students, including our president Natalie Diaz and vice president Elisa Martinez, will be graduating this year and we will miss them dearly.
