When 12 Judson students took Professor Jack Groppel’s Business 412 Project Management class last fall, they had no idea that they were going to create a new area on campus. This Founders’ Day at 1 p.m., Judson faculty, staff, students, and trustees are invited to a ribbon-cutting of Judson’s new Eagle Walk located in the wooded section to the left of Creekside.
This wooded area, which juts out into the river, has been used by community members for fishing. Now, thanks to the creative energy and project management of students in Professor Groppel’s class, as well as the creative energy and hard work of Bo Sisarica and others in Judson’s Plant Operations team, the new Eagle Walk features a few walking paths that have signs of scripture and inspirational quotes. Visitors to the Eagle Walk will also discover a designated seating space for classes to meet outdoors when the weather allows.
Learn more about this new space by joining us for the ribbon-cutting ceremony this Founders’ Day on Friday, October 22. You will have the opportunity to see the trail for yourself and learn what inspired these students and how they made their ideas a reality for future students and visitors.
