Students back claim of concern for environment

A group of Chesapeake High School students recently put some muscle behind their claims of environmental commitment as they spent a week planting trees, rebuilding trails for the handicapped and testing water quality at Greenbrier State Park.

And when they finished, the 18 members of the Environmental Club camped out, studying flowers, animals and the stars above them.

Biology teacher Ginny Barnicoat, physics teacher Tom Barnicoat and Kenny Wuertenberg, a volunteer coordinator with the South Mountain Recreation Area, led the trip. Teachers Hank Gottlich and Paul Miller also participated in lessons on astronomy and water quality.

The student participants were Ella Brierly, Amber Campbell, Courtney Clulow, Katie Davis, Katie Faulstich, Amy Furrow, Kristin Holt, David Jachowski, Yinka Ladeji, Amanda Magrogan, Zach Matty, Kim Muhl, Sean Murphey, Stacy Pierpont, Stefanie Pierpont, Wendy Pugh, Amanda Sawyer and Amanda Summey.

The students, who returned June 25, financed their expedition by washing cars and selling candy and T-shirts. The Chesapeake Bay Trust, the Lake Shore Rotary and the Chesapeake High School student government also made donations.
