Ten students from Mr. Phillip Pearcy’s Environmental Science class at G. Holmes Braddock Senior High School visited Montgomery Botanical Center this week as part of the Fairchild Challenge Environmental Immersion Day.

Rotations led by Michael Calonje, Ericka Witcher, Judy Kay, Tracy Magellan, and Vickie Murphy taught students about the different technical aspects of working at a botanic garden.

“Being able to see so many enthusiastic students from my alma mater brought me great joy.  I hope a few students catch the botany bug,” stated Tracy Magellan.
