Rising Seas Bert Roughton - Student Interviews

 

Rising Seas, The Next Generation Speaks 

 

Bert Roughton, award winning journalist and retired Senior Managing Editor of TheAtlanta Journal-Constitution and St. Simons resident, took the issue of rising sea levels to three dynamic young people from within our local Coastal Georgia community to get their thoughts. Mackenzie Buck,Monty Rutherford Hughes, and Catie Fenstermaker were all fortunate to take classes in high school that have ignited their passion for environmental issues, and they are all active with area non-profits to put that energy to work.  Their conversation is a compelling look at how the next generation of leaders views this growing environmental, economical, and political issue that they will inherit and how they are committedtoreversing some of these trends. As Catie Fenstermaker says, "I am not expecting perfection, but I am expecting effort." Please take a moment to watch this very engaging and inspiring 34 minute Zoom conference.
