Attending this conference resulted in earning college credit.

Environmental science work
Enrolled in AP Environmental Science course, school year 2009-2010, which covers a broad range of current environmental issues.

Conducting a for-credit independent study during the 2009-2010 school year.  I developed the syllabus for the course, the goal of which is to establish composting programs in two of the town schools and to educate students about the benefits of composting.

Co-founder and one of the leaders of REACT, a group committed to bringing environmental awareness to Coventry residents. This group had a variety of members from the town, including Troy Hopkins and Tim Ackert.

Co-founder and president of the Coventry High School Earth Club.  I founded the club with another student in my freshman and sophomore years of high school.  Since that time, the group has been continually working to encourage the school and our community to decrease its environmental impact.  In the club’s third year, the group’s popularity has grown and now has over 20 members.  In 2009, the Earth Club won first place and $3,000 through the “Keep Connecticut Cool Challenge” sponsored by the Institute for Sustainable Energy at Eastern Connecticut State University.  With the grant money received, the club purchased reusable plastic trays to replace the disposable Styrofoam trays previously used in our school cafeteria.  The group has also implemented a school recycling program.  The Earth Club recently received a $1,000 grant from the Town of Coventry Energy Task Force.  With this funding, the group will work to increase the number of town participants in the Clean Energy Options electricity program.
