Last week,  the Salem High School science club was notified that it has won the 2015 Indiana Tree Farm Outdoor Lab of the year award.

According to group sponsor and teacher John Calhoun, the award was given because of the club’s work on the 60 acres north of Salem Schools.


“We are very excited about this award,” said Calhoun. “So many people and organizations have helped us get this project started and we look

forward to continuing our work with our students to make this area an educational tool for our students, faculty and our community.”

The group will be receiving the award of a plaque and $500 on Friday February 13th at the annual HASTI conference.
