Walnut Hills Environmental Mentorship Program Comes to a Close

Posted on Feb 11, 2016 in Blog, Sponsor Spotlight

The Environmental Mentorship Project sponsored by Sunny Delight Beverages Company, came to a successful completion today at Walnut Hills High School (WHHS)!

During this 5-week  program, 96 WHHS environmental science students tackled local sustainability issues with assistance from mentors from local businesses and organizations as well as regional environmental experts. Each mentor worked with a student group on division of research, time management and presentation skills.

Parents, CPS administration and various business partners were invited to view the final presentations and, in addition to class credit, each student received an Own It! T-shirt (designed by KCB) for their hard work.

Thank you to Environmental Science teacher Bill Schnure, Sunny Delight Beverages Co., and the many mentors and environmental experts who shared their time and expertise with these teens!


We look forward to offering this program to other area high schools next year!
