ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  The annual Tree Stewardship award was presented to ATC President  Dr. Anthony Parker by Keep Albany Dougherty Beautiful.

Albany Tech was already named a Tree Campus USA, the first of its kind in South Georgia. Dr. Parker said he takes pride in how the campus is presented to the community.

"We're pleased that the community recognized that we have tried to be better stewards in our community to be more attractive, to make Albany proud of us, to develop a corridor in our part of town, especially the corridor from the airport to downtown, so we're very pleased that the city and the tree committee noticed," said Parker.

The award recognizes organizations that enhance the urban forest in Albany and Dougherty County.
