2014 GADOS

Trane, a Duval County Public School Green Champion platinum level sponsor, donated a mini-landscape makeover as a door prize at the 13-14 final meeting.  JW Johnson won the door prize.  Two Green Champions (Mary Mott and Coy Trawick), Susan Carew and Tony Foyt plus 8 volunteers from Trane braved the threatening weather on the afternoon of August 8, 2014 and spruced up the front of the school just in time for teachers to arrive on Monday.  Turned out even better than we all expected.  It looks great.
