Bay Educators Win Award
The 2012 North American Association for Environmental Education
Columbia Sportswear Teacher Scholarship is an award that recognizes
a teacher’s achievement in environmental education in his or her
classroom and the administrator who supported their endeavors.
This year’s winners are Sunila Varghese-Saunders, 6th grade science
teacher, and Dr. Joey Jones, principal, from Robert Frost Middle
School, Montgomery County, Maryland.
Sunila Varghese-Saunders is a 6th grade science teacher and team
leader at Robert Frost Middle School in Montgomery County,
Maryland. For over a decade, Sunila has organized annual overnight
trips in conjunction with CBF to explore the watershed.
Dr. Joey Jones is the principal at Sunila’s school. He has participated
in CBF’s Principals Environmental Leadership Program.
Congratulations to both!
A love for the Bay and passion for clean water inspired local teen Emily
Hardgrove (pictured above) to make a recent donation to CBF. Emily
raised the funds by collecting sea glass, turning it into beautiful jewelry, and selling it to her family and friends, including fellow students at
Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School where she is a senior.
