Getting youngsters inspired early on about protecting the environment is key to a cleaner, more viable future, Sally Campbell and Julie Graves believe.

That’s why these Cherokee County school teachers jumped at the chance to get their students involved in a Weiss Lake Renew Our Rivers (ROR) cleanup.

The idea was the brainchild of Kadie Nowak, who talked with the teachers about hosting an ROR-style cleanup for kids. Campbell oversees gifted children’s programs for third through sixth grades at Cherokee County Elementary and Middle schools, and Graves, who teaches 10th-11th grade math at Cherokee County High School, agreed the event aligned perfectly with teaching plans for Earth Month.
