Educators & Youth Leaders
Our Education Team (Linda Pettit and Carol Loopstra) with Katy Bertner of Cranbrook Elementary School
Each year Franklin Soil and Water recognizes an educator that goes above and beyond the call of duty to bring the environmental message to his/her students. We appreciate their enthusiasm and dedication to introduce their students to the value of our natural resources and the importance of becoming responsible citizens of the land.
Thomas Shockley has been elected and Jessica D’Ambrosio has been re-elected to the Board of Supervisors of Franklin Soil and Water Conservation District at a public election held September 17, 2015 at the District office, 1404 Goodale Boulevard, Columbus, Ohio.
We had three highly qualified candidates and voters found it difficult to pick only two of them for the two seats open on the Board. Thank you to Cathy Cowan Becker, Jessica D’Ambrosio and Thomas Shockley for offering your time and energy to our election. We would like to extend additional gratitude to Cathy Cowan Becker for her first run for Franklin Soil and Water Board Member. Her background in Environment and Natural Resources made her a great candidate for our Board and we hope to work with her in other ways in the future.
