Calhoun Community College receives Beautification Award

June 27, 2017

Calhoun Community College’s Decatur campus received a beautification award on June 8, 2017, from the Athens-Limestone Beautification Board.

The Athens-Limestone Beautification Board was added to the Keep Athens-Limestone Beautiful (KALB) umbrella in 1981. This is an all-volunteer board that is dedicated to managing green space and beautification projects that benefit the City of Athens and Limestone County. Some of those projects include the presentation of Beautification Awards, planting and maintaining the Highway 31 and Clinton Street triangle, as well as the flower pots around the Courthouse Square. This board also funds the maintenance of landscaping around the Welcome to Athens sign and provides assistance with beautification and landscaping of city cemeteries. 

“When potential students and visitors come to our campus, we have one opportunity to leave them with a lasting impression. We take great pride in ensuring the grounds on both of our campuses are well maintained throughout the year,” commented Dr. Jim Klauber, Calhoun’s President. “We thank the Athens-Limestone Beautification Board for recognizing the college with this award.”
