PLUM SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL'S GIRLS' LEADERS ASSOCIATION (GLA) IS AWARDED A $15,000 ALCOA FOUNDATION GRANT TO INCREASE AWARNESS FOR RECYCLING
Through the sponsorship of Mrs. Amy Martello and Mrs. Catherine Phillips, English teachers at Plum High School, and GLA President, Jessica Denzer (senior), GLA applied for this grant during the 2013-14 school year since students at the high school level expressed concern that not enough recycling is being done and that it could be done more effectively. On September 3, the club received notification that it had been awarded an Alcoa Foundation Grant of $15,000 for the initiative of recycling. GLA's overall goal of the project is to increase awareness of how much waste goes to the landfills instead of recycling and/or reusing during the 2014-2015 school year. GLA plans to use the ALCOA Foundation Grant in three parts: (1) preparing an awareness campaign with field trips to recycling centers for GLA ambassadors, speakers/training for students and staff, advertisements, and possibly an incentive for a completion among the schools; (20 tracking data of recycling efforts and waste within all schools; and, (3) expanding/modifying the current recycle bins for collecting all recyclables (paper, plastic, aluminum, and glass) correctly.
