Tree teachers

Two Henrico residents played key roles with Dominion's Project Plant It! program this year. Molly Nugent, a third-grade student at Rivers Edge Elementary, served as the student spokesperson and appeared on several television and radio shows to share what she learned about trees and the environment. Andy Hunt (Godwin Class of 2004) played the role of Ranger Spruce Sassafras for Radio Disney's Tree Trivia assemblies held at 20 schools throughout Virginia. During the assemblies, students cheered for trees while answering trivia questions in a game-show format hosted by the Ranger.
