Photos by Devon Eatherly Special to GCU News Bureau Dozens of firefighters and police officers were on the scene, but this time it wasn’t an emergency. A Grand Canyon University alumnus, Phoenix Fire Captain Austin Moreland, gathered first responders recently to resuscitate the Cartwright Elementary School District’s vision for a mobile educational garden that will benefit students, teachers and the larger Maryvale community. It was a sad day last October when Phoenix Fire Department Engine 15 arrived to a vehicle fire in an empty lot adjacent to Bret R. Tarver Elementary School and the Marc T.

The College of Science, Engineering and Technology held a hallway decorating contest with science-themed displays, such as EKG shapes, festively dressed skeletons and surgical glove Christmas trees. And the Clinical Practice Group in the College of Education celebrated with an ugly sweater contest.
