A Bee-utiful Learning Opportunity with Evergreen Graduate Students


In the Masters of Public Administration Program, students must complete a capstone project, the final degree requirement. For her project, MPA graduate student, Annie Pocklington, decided to collaborate with Quasar Surprise, MES 2017, who teaches urban agriculture at Avanti High School, to introduce high school students to beekeeping. Their club had a great deal of community support and educated students about the importance of bees in the environment while teaching them unique and fun beekeeping skills.

How librarian Stokley Towles brings meaning to workplace mundanity

“I get fixated on little things,” Stokley Towles, Evergreen library faculty member and multimedia performing artist, said. Towles has undergone adventures as a photographer, storyteller, and performance artist, and now integrates his affection for art with his research role in Evergreen’s Daniel J. Evans Library. However, his educational one-man performances expand much further than the library walls into the larger community of the Pacific Northwest.
