HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Leading by example, and leaving a legacy for the future is the idea behind a special tree planting ceremony at Alabama A&M Wednesday morning.

Toyota donated several trees in honor of Arbor Day, then Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority sisters put them in the ground.

One woman said they hope to inspire younger students to make a difference.

"Not only inspiring, but making sure there is a space for a future generation to grow, and letting them know they have to continue our legacy of conserving and maintaining our environment so we have a place that we call home," said Stephanie Gresham with the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sustainability Committee.

The 30 new trees were planted at Legacy Lake across from the Morrison building.
