Tainted Trees

While looking for a subject for my final project in Freeman's class, I was thinking about themes to tell a story. I stumbled upon Physical Plant workers by Newell drive on campus, and I realized how much goes unnoticed. With budget cuts, I know departments face difficult decisions and some professors may lose their jobs; seeing these men hard at work made me wonder about the plight of the non-faculty staff. I'm grateful this picture made it in the Alligator today, I hope it lets students take a brief second and appreciate the unsung heroes of UF's workforce.
