Earth Day clean-up appreciated
I would like to THANK the Environmental Programs Department (EPD) Staff that helped again for this year’s “Earth Day,” on Friday, April 22.
About 40- cubic yards of trash was picked up by the Ignacio High School students. All the trash collected from CR 318 and 172 was hauled away by EPD staff and Southern Ute Grounds Maintenance Staff.
I also would like to thank the Southern Ute Police Dept. and Tribal Rangers for traffic control while the IHS Student was out picking up trash along CR 318/172. I would also like to THANK the Southern Ute Drum staff for being out taking pictures of the trash pickup. It was GREAT having the IHS Student’s and Tribal staff out for observing of “Earth Day” 2016. Hope to see you All again next year for “Earth Day” 2017. Great Job Everyone!!

On behalf of IHS Student Senate
I would like to thank you all for your help, support, cooperation, and certainly your patience in working with us. I have taken a position of putting the leadership and responsibilities in the hands of the students. Bekah Powell spearheaded the trash clean up organization on our end. If you get a chance, give her some recognition.
Thanks again, and will do it again next year!
