The Salisbury City Council recently gave its approval to Timken’s “Stash Your Trash” program, encouraging area residents not to litter. By her side during the presentation to the council was a logo designed by Salisbury University freshman Jayne Clark of Crofton, MD.
Timken encouraged festival-goers to sign a quilt, pledging not to throw their trash on the ground. She worked with local elementary school students to create the quilt, which also included a square created by SU freshman Shweta Reddy of Annapolis and Haley Goeller of Scotch Plains, NJ, to represent SU’s Green Floor Living Learning Community
Dr. Maarten Pereboom, dean of SU’s Charles R. and Martha N. Fulton School of Liberal Arts, was among members of the University community signing the quilt, vowing to help make Salisbury a cleaner city. Timken and her volunteers received over 500 signatures overall.
