Festival of Trees

Even though this event isn't technically a SEQA event, so many people in our department worked hard on it we wanted to share. While we already had plenty on our plates, President Wallace came to the ATL campus with a project: The Festival of Trees. It's an event hosted by the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta where custom Christmas trees are made for patients in their care. The SEQA department had two kids to make trees for. One wants to grow up to be a marine biologist and the other loves Spider-Man. Hundreds of man-hours went into creating these trees. Check them out below!

Pat Quinn took on the Spider-Man tree with amazing results. We weren't sure how he was going to do it but it turned out great!

Nolan Woodard, Shawn Crystal, and a ton of SEQA-ATL students, who donated their precious time away from finals, created an island with undersea environment for the hopeful marine biologist. Turned out pretty well. Thanks for all the help, guys!

But not to be outdone is Pat Quinn's assistant Nicole Dabbs. She worked with the other Academic Director Assistant Kori Wiltz to create this amazing carousel tree! It's phenomenal and we consider it to be the best out of all of the 30 or so trees created for the event. Nice work, ladies!
