Accent on Academics

 

Thomas County Central High School’s Advanced Placement Environmental Science class recently went on a trip to gain firsthand insight on ways the planet Earth functions. Teacher Laura Kornegay and her students visited several sites in Thomas County, including the Thomas County-Thomasville Municipal Solid Waste Landfill. Junior Logan Herring claimed she “never knew how interesting a landfill could actually be,” as students were surprised at just how much waste is produced. On the second phase of their trip, the students teamed up with representatives from Keep Thomas County Beautiful to plant two live oak seedlings which were grown from acorns from Thomasville’s famous “Big Oak.”  The final portion of the trip was to Thomas University’s Earth Day Fair. Palmer NeSmith says they all left the day of fun with motivation. “It’s simple,” she said. “Take every chance you can to admire the beauty of Thomas County and help it maintain its beauty.”
