Dunbar teams place second, third in state’s Envirothon
Students from Paul Laurence Dunbar High School excelled in the 2017 Kentucky Envirothon, which ran May 17-18 at the Lake Cumberland 4-H Education and Leadership Center in Jabez. In this statewide competition, the teams demonstrated their knowledge of Kentucky’s natural resources at field stations covering aquatics, soils, forestry, and wildlife.
Fayette County’s “B” team was runner-up with Dunbar’s Hannah Wang, Cici Mao, Zsombor Gal, Kelly Chen, and Reka Gal, and the “A” team placed third with Yoon Cho, Spandan Buch, Amit Lohe, Ananth Miller-Munthy, and Kevin Hutcheson. Both groups were coached by Carly Burton of the Fayette County Conservation District.
With the support of natural resource professionals, this program trains students in environmental problem-solving through experiments, analysis, and critical thinking. Teams of students compete at the regional and state level. For questions, contact Johnna McHugh with the Kentucky Division of Conservation, (502) 782-6703.
