The City of Boaz is continuing its partnership with Snead State Community College’s horticulture program with a $10,000 donation.
The donation, delivered by Boaz Mayor David Dyar and Councilman Johnny Willis, will fund horticulture students’ efforts with growing annuals and vegetables for the city. Last year, the city donated $7,500 toward the effort.
“Students will take the flowers they have grown and plant them around the city including downtown, the Park on Main, and the Boaz Senior Center,” said Dr. Tom Warren, Snead State’s biology and horticulture instructor. Students will also coordinate with Kenny Smith of the Boaz Maintenance Department.
“I would like to thank Snead State President Dr. Joe Whitmore for his continued leadership in allowing the City of Boaz to partner with Dr. Warren and the horticulture program,” Mayor Dyar said. “This relationship has allowed for continued community engagement and investment which benefits both the citizens of Boaz and the students at Snead State.”
