Summit Gives Catawba Student Opportunity to Help Make Better World

For Catawba student Sarah Moore, helping with the National Environmental Summit for High School Students at the Center for the Environment at Catawba College gives her experience planning a large event and the opportunity to ultimately help create a better world.

"We're really wanting to teach these students that they can use their talents to make the earth a more sustainable place to live," the Mocksville native said. "The more people that we can have promoting sound environmental practices in every discipline is an advantage to the world."

If students are interested in music, science, acting, public speaking or social networking, for example, Moore said she hopes the summit will encourage them to use their talents to inspire people to love nature and help protect the planet. "We want them to see that they don't have to be environmental majors to make a difference," she said.
