Congratulations to Christy Pickering on her acceptance to the Biomedical Engineering Ph.D. program at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD. Her Ph.D. fellowship offer includes full tuition, health insurance, and a living stipend for the duration of her Ph.D.! She also received an additional fellowship from the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program that will provide additional funds for her stipend and provide money to Johns Hopkins for tuition. Johns Hopkins is ranked as the number one Biomedical Engineering program in the United States. Only a fraction of the applicants are accepted. This is truly an honor for Ms. Pickering and we're proud to have her represent Hazel Green!

The Hazel Green Construction Academy is hard to work in the Trojan yard! They are now adding the mulch to the flower beds. Mulch is being applied to soil to conserve moisture, improve the fertility and health of the soil, reduce the weed growth, and it just makes the nation look good! Way to keep us looking sharp, Construction Academy!
