Students from every county high school checked local waterways and schoolyards for pollution, erosion and water quality, then reported their results at last month’s Watershed Report Card Summit. At the ceremony, County Executive Calvin Ball, HCPSS secondary science coordinator Naté Hall and school superintendent Michael Martirano (above, with students) praised the students’ work to improve our county’s waterways. After the ceremony, students spoke with elected officials about their findings and proposed solutions. Check out the report card that the students gave to our streams and rivers.
