October 16, 2015 was the annual President’s Club dinner here in Rexburg. This event is say ‘thank you’ to those who offer monetary contributions to the school. The donors get a chance to visit campus and meet with university president.
For most any banquet type event on campus, the Flower Center has the opportunity to provide floral arrangements and this was no different. We put together 50 of these elegant bowl designs on Thursday evening for the dinner on Friday. Being able to provide this service gives our students more experience and hands on learning.
Our aim for the Department of Horticulture at Brigham Young University-Idaho is to nurture understanding of both the art and science of Horticulture. Students learn experimentally in the classroom, laboratory, greenhouse, and ten acre Thomas E. Ricks demonstration garden as they pursue an Associates or Bachelors Degree. Using the medium of plants, students develop habits of hard work, enlightened minds, and healthy living that assist in gainful employment opportunitues.
