HLD Senior, Anthony Choquette was one of four students in the country to receive the prestigious "Challenge Award" from The Walden Woods Project. This award is a national award that focuses on unique environmental challenges at a local, regional or national level.
Anthony has been an exemplary environmental leader since he stepped into our school community garden at Lawrence High School campus. Anthony labored hard to help create our 1400 square foot community garden.
Last year, Anthony was curious to learn how he could be proactive and find solutions to environmental problems in the City of Lawrence. As a leader on the Groundwork Lawrence Green Team (an environmental educational youth program), he has helped build and tend to community gardens, volunteered at our local Farmer’s Market and CSA, and led health workshops that educated the community about healthy eating and living. He has participated in GWL’s Spicket River Cleanup for three consecutive years, and has done several invasive species pulls for both Japanese Knotweed and Oriental Bittersweet. He is also involved with a special water quality testing project with the EPA.
Anthony plans to study Environmental Law in college next year. This young man is already an impressive advocate making Lawrence a safer and more beautiful place to live. Congratulations Anthony!
