Students complete the James River Leadership Academy

Lafayette students Ed Coombs and Brenner Beard successfully completed the James River Leadership Academy (JRLA), a year-long leadership program for high school students who are interested in advocating for the future of the James River. Students involved in the program commit to four Leadership Sessions and are required to implement a “community-based action project” outside of the Leadership Sessions. Ed and Brenner, along with their cohort, presented their projects before their families and staff of the James River Association. They were presented their certificates by Bill Street, Chief Executive Officer, and Charles Johnson, Senior Environmental Educator. They also had the opportunity to hear keynote speaker Pamela Northam, the First Lady of Virginia. Shown L – R: Bill Street, Chief Executive Officer, James River Association, LHS Senior Ed Coombs, LHS Junior Brenner Beard, and Charles Johnson, Senior Environmental Educator, James River Association.
