School Story

I was the first President and a founding member of the Ecology Club. The late Chuck Knickrehm (sp?), English teacher, was our club advisor. We were the first to begin a paper recycling program at Bradford, and I'd love to know if/how the program has expanded and if the Club still exists. The Ecology Club was made up of a small, but committed, group of about 10 individuals, who tried to make a difference to get students to change their habits to improve the environment and think outside themselves. This was a challenge back in the 70's! For our class yearbook, one of our club members - Clay Perone - was a good sport and climbed into a garbage can for our group photo.
