Nandini Naidu

*She pretty much does everything*

My name is Nandini Naidu and I am 13 years old.  I am an 8th grader and a
La Loma Junior High School Web Leader.  I am on the La Loma Green 
Machine `s Robotics team, Science Olympiad team, and Academic Pentathlon
team.  Some sports I play are soccer, softball, and swimming.  I have participated
in Operation 9-2-99 river clean-ups near John Thurman field and Tuolumne 
River Trust restoration project at Dios Rios Ranch.  Also, I did water monitoring along 
Dry Creek and Tuolumne River with the Tuolumne River Trust, too.  Working with my 
team this year has caused me to think about our Tuolumne River`s  and 
Chinook Salmon`s ecosystem.  So, I have made it my business to educate and 
raise awareness, in desire of improving the Tuolumne River`s condition and saving the Chinook.

Presentation/Administration/Core Values
*She's in Yearbook too*

Hi, my name is Danielle Haubrich and I am 13 years old. In robotics, Science Olympiad in addition I work on the presentation and kind-of do the task of a secretary. Last year I participated in to FLL. This whole project has really affected my self AND my family. This project gave me an opportunity to visit the river for the first time. I was shocked. Now, I know we need to make a difference.

Blake Sutter


*His shirts always have a collar*

Hi my name is Blake Sutter I`m 13 years old and an 8th grade student at La Loma Jr High. I am a part of the Green Machine Robotics team and Science Olympiad team as well. Some of the out of school activities that I participate in are Football, Baseball, and the Ski team in the Sierra Nevada. I have participated in the operation 9-2-99 river cleanups near John Thurman fields and the Dos Rios riparian restoration project. Through working with fellow team mates and mentors I have discovered within myself that there is a major problem regarding the Tuolumne River's condition and Chinook salmon population. So, in response, I have made it my goal and responsibility to educate and raise awareness for the Tuolumne and Chinook. In hopes of improving the tuolumne rivers condition and #SavetheChinook.

Colin Flanders
*The tallest 8th grader you'll ever meet*

My name is Colin Flanders and I am 13 years old. I go to La Loma Junior High School and I am on the Green Machine Robotics team and the Green team for Science Olympiad. I have played baseball since I was 3 years old. My experience at the Tuolumne River cleanups have been fun, interesting, a little disturbing, and exciting. Working by Dry Creek was my favorite cleanup because a lot of my friends were there, so I could work and have fun at the same time.

My name is Emma Musso and I’m 12 years old and in 7th grade. I am a presenter in the La Loma Green Machine Robotics Team #8260 and also in Science Olympiad, in which I do three events. I have had a good time participating in river clean ups and riparian restorations with my team. My favorite moment was at the restoration at Dos Rios Ranch playing with the pug, Chewie.

Easton Allan
*Has a Ph.D in majigs*

My name is Easton Allan and I am 12 years old. I'm a student at La Loma Junior High and I’m apart of the STAR center robotics class. Being on the robotics team has showed me how important of a species the Chinook salmon is to the Tuolumne. I enjoy skateboarding, mountain biking, and hanging out with friends. I believe that what we do in robotics is very important to our city and environment and that we need more people to participate and help us at cleanups and restoration projects. I had a lot of fun collecting seeds from gum 
plants at Dos Rios Ranch with my team.
