Williamstown Middle School has been awarded the annual “Environmental Quality Award” by the New Jersey Clean Communities Council, a statewide, comprehensive program to reduce litter, promote volunteer clean-up of public lands and sustain a reduction in little through education.
Williamstown Middle School, part of the Monroe Township Public Schools in Gloucester County, was honored for its leadership in helping to pioneer the first environmental student exchange in Puerto Rico, said Sandy Huber, executive director of the New Jersey Clean Communities Council. “We are honoring these students for their leadership, as they are helping to address out goals of inclusion in environmental education.”
Accepting the award on behalf of the middle school was teacher Jill Baturin, as well as three students: Devon Matthews, Christopher Palazzo and Madison Foti.
