Accent on Academics
Thomas County Central High School’s Envirothon team finished its opening season with a strong showing at state competition.
The team finished in the top 10 overall and “near the top” in Aquatic Ecology & Current Issue at the Georgia Envirothon, according to advisor Laura Kornegay. The event was held March 29-30 at Camp John Hope in Fort Valley.
Team members are Bret Hendricks, Maggie Martin, Luvy Miranda, Steven Tran, and Vince Wynn.
“The state competition was considerably more difficult than region Envirothon,” Bret Hendricks said. “This makes me feel that all of our hard work paid off. Placing as one of the top 10 teams in the state for a competition we competed in for the very first time makes me feel proud of our team."
Steven Tran said the state level competition was a change for the team.
“It was more challenging to all of us, but I feel like I have enjoyed the competition,” he said. “I am proud of my team and the amount of work we put into the different events. There were many larger schools we had to face, yet we managed to outperform them in certain events.”
Vince Wynn calls Envirothon “an amazing experience.”
“I was given great hands on experience that helped me outside of academics,” he said. “I now know what value I place on the environment.”
