Hi, my name is Cleo, I'm a senior and began writing for Spectrum as a freshman. Last semester, I was the Variety, Photo, and Social Media Editor. I love taking photos and capturing fun moments with people. Outside of school my favorite things are running and spending time with friends and family.

Environmental Sustainability, one of the topics a group of students in the class looked into for their final project. In the group was Mackenzie Higgins ‘24, Michelle Elliott ‘25, Ella Chester ‘24, Ruhi Kurdikar ‘25 and Sarah Hsia ‘25. This group researched how the community views environmental sustainability. Based on the SPARC survey, they found ways to educate
and better practices for the community. The group also created a word cloud as a method of research for their project. The word cloud was filled with words students think of when they think about environmental sustainability. The group explored discrepancy of community intent and actions, and the discrepancy of community priorities. At the end of their presentation the group came up with recommendations for classes incorporating environmental sustainability into their curriculums, students having more exposure to the topic, more attention to the issue,
empower students, add new core values or add to one of the existing core values like respect.
