Ecological Interns Aid Recycling Campaign

Most interns create paperwork — making copies, organize mailings, filing documents, scanning and faxing papers.

Seniors Griffin Hutchins and Morgan Herman recycle it all.

Hutchins and Herman are this year’s recycling interns, a new program by Ecology Club adviser Ms. Theresa Ferrari.

The recycling interns were commissioned to “cruise through the school and pick up all recycled material,” Ferrari said.

The internship was created to ease Ferrari’s workload and make it more student driven.  In addition  to serving as a math teacher and department chair, Ferrari oversees the school’s recycling programs.

The intern’s main focus is to rouDSC_0277nd up bins and put them in the rolling container to be placed in the dumpster. They also recycle boxes from the lunch room and take up recycled material from the Lower School.  The materials are then picked up on a weekly basis to be dumped.


“Mrs. Ferrari is a great advisor and has really improved the recycling aspect of Stratford,” Herman said.

The interns are not, however, responsible for all recycling. Ferrari has made homerooms responsible for their own recycling bins and the study hall after lunch is responsible for cleaning up all lunch room recycled materials.
