Envirothon Advisor Named Conservationist of the Year!

Monday, February 04, 2013

Recently I had the pleasure of attending the Hillsdale Conservation District's Annual Meeting to present the Conservationist of the year award.  This year Hillsdale CD chose to honor one of Michigan Envirothon's dedicated team advisors, Chip Patterson.  Chip, has shown great dedication and leadership to his students both in the classroom and beyond.  Chip spends much of his free time training and education  youth for Michigan Envirothon competitions.  I would like to recognize not only Chip's work in cultivating the next generation of environmentally aware and engaged Michigan citizens but also all of those teachers who go above and beyond for Michigan's future.
