Students Raising Money for Scholarships and Future Activities for the Forestry Club

By: Audrie La Fleur and Amanda Brooks

 On Oct 12, 2013 the Society of American Foresters hosted the Footprints 5k trail-run and walk at the Range site that Ecology and Natural Resources Teaching Area. The 5k was in honor of Oana Popescu, a former assistant lecturer in the department of Ecosystem Science and Management.  Oana dedicated her life to students and to her love of trees . The students successfully raised $6,000 through sponsorships, donations. They collected gift cards through taking initiative and asking College Station businesses for their help. The funds raised will support the scholarship in Mrs. Popescu’s name for a student in the Ecosystem Sciences and Management Department. The other money will go to help the students in the Society of American Foresters -  Texas A&M Student Chapter’s to fund new projects and help the students gain membership into the National Society of American Foresters.

 The organization would like to thank all those who participated in Footprints 5k trail-run and walk; we would also like to extend a heart-felt thank you for those who sponsored and donated to their cause.

 Thank You !!!!
