Freshman Speeches to Senior Political Activism Projects
In the last weeks of schools, students were intensely working on culminating projects from freshman speeches to senior political activism projects. At Summit Prep, senior Laurel N. passionately pitched how we would have enough food to feed the world if we reduced global food waste and loss. Laurel is heading to the University of Montana in the fall to participate in the Global Leadership Initiative and study community health. She “wants to help to bring food security around the world.” She argues, “we have the resources to save our food but we take it for granted.” Laurel’s passion was sparked during her time volunteering in Latin America, as well as helping to hand-pick 20,000 cucumbers that would have been tossed from a plant and instead donating it to Northwest Harvest. We are excited to see the changes she and other students will make in their community and our world as they continue their education!
