On Wednesday, July 12, at 6:30 PM, University of Washington students who are currently attending ACG as part of a faculty-led program gathered at the ACG open-air theater for a poignant tree-planting ceremony to honor all children who have tragically lost their lives to Covid, migration, human negligence, famine, war, hunger and want. The students organized this poignant ceremony under the guidance of Dr. Taso G. Lagos, Interim Director of the Executive Masters of International Studies at the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies, University of Washington.
Joining the students in this meaningful event was President David G. Horner, who delivered a heartfelt welcome speech. He encouraged the students to return to our campus in the future when they have children of their own and later when they become grandparents, so they can witness and share the growth of the trees they planted. President Horner assured them that ACG would always be open for them to visit and that the ground where the trees were planted holds a profound significance and emotional connection for all involved.
