TCC rings in the holidays

From poinsettias to angels and the gift of song, TCC students and staff learn and share for the holidays.

Hands-on learning yields healthy harvest

Pretty poinsettias set the tone for holiday gatherings and provide hands-on learning for Horticulture program students. The process begins as students prepare in late summer by planting poinsettia cuttings, flown in from the Paul Ecke Ranch in Antigua, Guatemala.

Students nurture seedlings and ensure growth by pinching, fertilizing and spacing plants until they’re ready for holiday fanfare. The hardy plants bloom in December and are available for sale from now until Dec. 13 in the greenhouses at the Chesapeake Campus. For more information, visit the poinsettia page.

Singing in the season

With rousing renditions of holiday and seasonal songs including Joy to the World and Robert Frost’s Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening, the TCC Chorus welcomed in the season with a concert at the TCC Roper Performing Arts Center on Nov. 30.

 

TCC angels

TCC staffers reach out to help area children with toys, clothes and other items collected for the Salvation Army Angel Tree program. These gifts may be the only holiday remembrance for many children in Hampton Roads.

Chesapeake Campus staffers prepare dozens of stuffed bears and stockings for delivery to Salvation Army. Amanda Rector, Tempie Forosan, Christie Bradley and Joyce Banks led the campus drive to bring joy to young children in our area.
