Middle School Receives Prestigious National Environmental Education Award

The Wakulla County School District is a co-recipient of the 2007 Coastal America Partnership Award. Superintendent David Miller and Riversprings Middle School Principal Dod Walker accepted the plaque and letter on behalf of the school from President George W. Bush acknowledging their involvement in award-winning Learning in Florida's Environment (LIFE) program.

The Coastal America Partnership was established in 1992 to protect, preserve and restore coastal watersheds by integrating federal actions with state and local government and non-governmental efforts. Federal partners include the Departments of Agriculture, Air Force, Army, Commerce, Defense, Energy, Housing and Urban Development, Interior, Navy, State and Transportation, as well as the Environmental Protection Agency and the Executive Office of the President. To recognize outstanding partnership efforts, Coastal America created a national awards program in 1997.
