The JC Raulston Arboretum proudly welcomes five student interns this summer (photo from left to right), Rachel Burress, Danielle Smith, Bryan Byers, Taylor Leesnitzer, and Eddie Henderson. All are NC State students and will be very busy propagating plants for the JCRA Annual Plant Distribution, installing new pathways, and helping with the very large job of maintaining the garden. Danielle Smith is majoring in elementary education and will be working with the JCRA Children’s Program. Be sure to say hello to them when you visit the Arboretum this summer.
The Student Internship Program is generously supported by donations to the JCRA Internship Fund and by two named JCRA internship endowments—Dr. Robert E. Lyons JCRA Internship Endowment and the Isabella Cannon Endowed Arboretum Internship.
