Shiflett Group Participates in KU Big Event

A Windy Spring Day in the Park
April 23, 2022 - Written by Mark B. Shiflett

"Our group came together again for the KU Big Event. Led by Chemical Engineering Junior Madelyn Bennett, a group of 10 chemical engineering students, staff, and faculty met on a WINDY Spring Day to mulch around trees in Watson Park. Watson Park was established in 1854 and is famous for locomotive #1073 that was built in 1902 and on display. We met with Ryan and Justin from the City of Lawrence who had rakes, shovels, glasses, and three large trucks full of mulch for us to spread. The weather was warm and the time together was memorable. A nice break from doing homework, writing reports, and preparing for exams. We enjoyed having lunch together afterwards and we look forward to the next event."
