GREENVILLE, Ohio—June 25, 2012— Recent Mississinawa Valley High School graduate Sarah Carroll earned the Rumpke Darke County Scholarship for her commitment to environmental stewardship.
As a 4-H member, Carroll has picked up roadside litter for Adopt-A-Highway and Darke County Trash Bash. Carroll has also helped her school’s recycling program conserve more natural resources and landfill space. She also helped maintain trash barrels at the Great Darke County Fair with her church youth group.
“I know taking care of the Earth will make it last longer, and picking up trash will help it to look nicer as well,” Carroll wrote in her application. “I am also happy to pick up, because if you are picking up trash with the right group of people, it can be a lot of fun and a memorable experience for everyone.”
Carroll was a student leader involved in National Honor Society, Students Against Drunk Driving, band, volleyball, candy striping and Darke County Jr. Fairboard. She plans to major in athletic training at Anderson University.
“We are proud to acknowledge Sarah Carroll’s efforts with this scholarship and hope to inspire other students to help keep our community clean and green,” said Rumpke Regional Vice President Mike Bramkamp.
