When life hands you lemons
Whit Davis Elementary School first graders Abigail Chen (left) and Emma Rentz listen to UGA entomologist Joe McHugh as he talks to their class as part of LemonAid on May 3. More than 20 faculty members from the Division of Biological Sciences in Franklin College volunteered with the outreach program to visit Athens area schools to talk about their specialties. The name of this program came from professors wanting to make something good out of the “lemons” of furlough days. Reading Day, the day students have off to prepare for finals, gave the professors at UGA the perfect opportunity to reach out and connect with the community.
