Jobe named to Honors List
A student from Pecos has been honored at Lipscomb University, in Nashville,
Tenn., for academic achievement during the spring semester.
Lexa Jobe has been placed on the honor roll for earning a grade point
average between 3.5 and 3.99 while taking 12 credit hours or more during
the semester, said Dr. Craig Bledsoe, Provost.
Jobe, of Pecos, is a Communications major.
Students at Lipscomb University earn bachelor of arts and bachelor of
science in more than 100 major programs of study. Master's degree programs
are offered in Bible, education, and business administration. An Accelerated
Adult Studies Program is available.
Lipscomb is associated with the churches of Christ.
Pecos named Tree City USA
Pecos has been named a Tree City USA by The National Arbor Day Foundation.
It is the sixth year Pecos has received this national recognition.
The Tree City USA program is sponsored by The National Arbor Day Foundation
in cooperation with the National Association of State Foresters and the
USDA Forest Service.
To become a Tree City USA, a community must meet four standards, a tree
board or department, a tree care ordinance, a comprehensive community forestry
program, and an Arbor Day observance.
"Trees in our cities and towns help clean the air, conserve soil and water,
moderate temperature and bring nature into our daily lives," said John Rosenow,
president of The National Arbor Day Foundation. "Tree City USA designation
recognizes the work of elected officials, staff and citizens who plant and
care for the community forest," said Rosenow.
"Trees are a vital component of the infrastructure in our towns and cities,
and provide many environmental and economical benefits," said Rosenow. "A
community, and its citizens, that recognizes these benefits and provides
needed care for its trees deserves recognition and thanks," he said.
