The Sierra Chapter congratulates 2020 scholarship recipients Ashley Danner, Zach Zetz
Ashley Danner – Ashley will be studying Biology at Cuesta College in San Luis Obispo, California. She maintained a nearly 4.0 GPA in high school while participating in symphonic band, marching band, water polo, and swim helping her team achieve league championships 2 years in a row as an underclassman. She also found time to volunteer for food banks, mission trips, and at the Cal Poly cat shelter. She hopes to combine her career goals of working in the medical industry with efforts to increase awareness of the challenges faced by the solid waste industry with plastics recycling. She understands the importance of changing our production and disposal habits, creating accountability for dealing with plastics responsibly, and implementing sustainable solutions for solving the difficult problem of pollution prevention in a world so dependent upon plastic.
Zach Zetz – Zach has completed one year and will be furthering his education at Fresno Pacific University in Fresno, California. He competed in swim, diving, and water polo throughout high school and continues his water polo career at FPU. He also volunteered his time to support local charities such as Valley Children’s Hospital, Multiple Sclerosis Society, and the City of Clovis Fire Department Explorer Program. As he works toward a degree in Business Administration, Zach takes with him an awareness of how businesses, individuals, and local governments need to work together to achieve state mandates for organics recycling and resolve food waste issues to benefit communities in the Central Valley.
