The Saints Bookstore and Phi Theta Kappa have joined forces at Seward County Community College to bring more trees to the campus – and more money to students.
To celebrate the end of the 2008 academic year, the bookstore will add points to the Spring Celebration fund for every textbook that students sell back. At the close of the term, the bookstore will total these points and translate those points to dollars to purchase trees for campus.
“We recognize the commitment that students at Seward County Community College have to the environment,” said Jerri Lynn Lyddon, director. “With this event, we can help translate that commitment to actual plantings. Current students are paid for selling their books to the bookstore – and students next semester can save money buying these books for their classes.”
The Saints Bookstore plans to total the points and determine how many new trees the student book sales have generated on May 16. The college will then plant trees within a few weeks to welcome students back to campus.
“We are proud of our partnership with PTK and Seward County Community College,” Lyddon said. “We are excited to help bring more trees to the campus.”
