“We take care of all the landscapes and irrigation systems throughout our beautiful campus. Most anything that grows we are responsible for its care,” Jones said. “Keeping our students and staff safe is another one of our goals. Removing dangerous trees and their diseased branches helps in keeping us all safe.” He also is responsible for delegating care when concerns with small animals occur. In the summer, the grounds crew keeps the campus manicured, and in the winter the staff works on landscape projects until spring.

“Aside from renovating/improving older landscapes throughout campus, my favorite aspect is getting to know our diverse campus staff.”
