Two William Monroe Seniors Focus on Serving Others

Leah KirssinLeah Kirssin, a Senior at William Monroe High School in Greene County, has made an impact on the world around her by lobbying members of the Virginia state legislature.  Lobbying is the attempt to influence lawmakers on policy-based issues--Leah has lobbied at the State House of Delegates and State Senate in Richmond on behalf of the gun-control lobby, healthcare, the poor, and for continued funding of the BRVGS program.  Says Leah, "...I felt like I needed to get involved and create change." 



Phillip HallPhillip Hall, a Senior at William Monroe High School in Greene County, was inspired to work on behalf of the environment for his senior year research and thesis project. An avid environmentalist, Phillip chose to work with Wild VA and has been conducting research on the decommissioning of forest roads.  His research paper will be used by Wild VA and submitted to the Forestry Department to aid in their research!   Says Phillip, "I've been interested in studying the environment for years and finding a grassroots group like Wild VA was a great opportunity for me."
