Keeping the Torch

By Linda Pollastretti

Kudos to Jeevan Grewal who for her District Dogwood Scholarship looked around her campus and decided the tackle the Torch logo on our upper field.  The Torch was overgrown with grass and other weeds.  Jeevan investigated a number of different options to bring the Torch back to life from gravel, to concrete, or different vegetation.  Her researched looked at cost analysis, time to design and implement and environmental impact.  In the end, she decided on various perennials to bring in the colours of the torch year after year.  Last week, she began the large task of weeding, soil management, and planting. 

Kudos Jeevan for taking ownership and agency of your school and leaving a legacy.
