Sustainable Wahconah

Blue in our Hearts, Green in our Thumbs

Meet our 2021-2022 Green Umbrella Officers

President: Jocelyn Sommers

Our Green Umbrella club at Wahconah is especially important to me because it allows our student body to make a positive impact in the surrounding environments, as-well as spread environmental consciousness throughout our community. With the help of my fellow officers, I'm excited to be able to successfully meet our goals while spreading awareness this coming school year.

Vice President: Sharlyse Henshaw

Protecting and preserving our beautiful environment at a school and national level has always been something that I’m passionate about. This club has allowed me to do that for the past three years and I’m very excited to be continuing that alongside our wonderful group. With the help of my fellow officers, we will be able to turn our new school’s environmental hopes into realities for this next school year.

Secretary: Sheffield Drewry

Ever since I was little, I learned how important it is to care for and respect our beautiful environment because it does so much for our world. Green Umbrella inspires our school community to get into a sustainable mindset. I believe that every small effort to help Mother Nature is a step in the right direction! With the help of my fellow officers and club members, we will continue to find ways to make Wahconah an eco-friendly environment in our new building.
