Farmwell Station Students Discuss Environment with Superintendent, Supervisors

Students from Farmwell Station Middle School hosted Loudoun supervisors and Superintendent Scott Ziegler to discuss the county’s efforts to reduce its carbon footprint.

The students belong to the Green Team, a club that studies nature, energy consumption, and the local ecosystem. The club recently bagged 36 pounds of garbage around the school grounds and the W&OD Trail. 

Ziegler was joined by County Chair Phyllis Randall (D- At Large) and Supervisor Sylvia Glass (D- Broad Run).

“Spending time with the next generation and hearing their concerns, issues, and ideas is so important to me,” Randall said. “Every elected official should seek to pass on a safer, healthier world to the leaders of tomorrow.”

Ziegler noted to students that the division had just received the ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year Sustained Excellence Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy.

    It’s very fitting LCPS received a “Sustained Excellence” award from the feds. LCPS is a marvelous school division. Unfortunately, some misguided souls have tried to malign it. But they don’t stand a chance. Kudos to Dr. Ziegler & other dignitaries who attended this event. “Going green” is the wave of the future. Happy Mother’s Day Loudoun!

    So you consider an award in environmental issues a win, but wouldn’t it be wonderful if the received an award for actual education.

    Better yet, how about not being looked at for Title IX issues or being investigated by the VA AG for mishandling of an serious issue (not the mosfortunate event you previously described it as).
