VICTORY TOWNSHIP — West Shore Educational Service District agriscience students planted apple trees Wednesday in a small plot on the campus of West Shore Community College. The high school students are installed in the Career Technical Education class taught by Mark Willis with the assistance of Meg Cooper.

The orchard was partially funded by the Mason-Lake Conservation District in memory of Murray Stall, who served as a technician for the district. Volunteers Tom Alway and Rob Alway helped prepare the plot. 

Willis said the plot will be used to teach students about all aspects of growing fruit, which is a major commodity in Mason and Oceana counties.
