Wake students picked for conservation workshop

November 10, 2013 

Five Wake County students were selected to attend the 2013 Resource Conservation Workshop last summer at N.C. State.

Hannah Medford from Enloe High School in Raleigh, Avery Mukherjee from Heritage High School in Wake Forest, Grant Jones from Middle Creek High School in Apex, Sarah Sticklin from Wake Forest High School and Julia Perry from Wake N.C. State STEM Early College High School in Raleigh were sponsored by the Wake Soil & Water Conservation District. Along with 95 other high school students from across the state, they learned management best practices from natural resources professionals in forestry, soils, water quality and wildlife.

At the end of the weeklong workshop, students took an exam to qualify for scholarships and cash awards.
