On September 26, Johnny Appleseed made his annual visit to Macon East students in the Pre-K building.  Johnny read a book about his life, teaching the young students how he introduced apples trees throughout much of the United States. An American legend, Johnny Appleseed was known for his kindness, generosity, and his leadership in conservation. His journey west began in 1792, and Johnny became known for his vagabond attire which included bare feet and a cooking pot on his head. For many years, Macon East students have enjoyed a visit from a senior student clad as Johnny Appleseed. This year, Johnny was portrayed by Jake Wyrosdick, who shared apples with the students after reading his story.
