The Fulton Learning Center (FLC) metal recycling program recently honored their top metal recyclers for the 2019-20 school year with a small awards ceremony.

The ceremony followed strict social distancing measures and met outside.

All top metal recyclers earned a trophy for their efforts in protecting their environment.

Considering the situation regarding COVID-19 and being shut down for the final two months of school, FLC metal recycling program sponsor Martha McLeod was very impressed by her students efforts in continuing to deliver recycled metals.

“There were many sacks of cans thrown over the back fence of the school that I continued to weigh and transport to the recycling center,” said McLeod. “The pounds of aluminum cans brought in was amazing, considering our school was closed.”

The top five overall third grade aluminum/brass/copper recyclers (along with the amount in pounds recycled) are as follows:

First place – Blaine Chapman (1,801.5 lbs.)

Second place – Keely Wilson (964.5 lbs.)

Third place – Kayleigh McCall (873 lbs.)

Fourth place – Zander Jasso (579.5 lbs.)

Fifth place – Sophia Everett (335 lbs.)

The top five overall fourth grade aluminum/brass/copper recyclers (along with the amount in pounds recycled) are as follows:

First place – Aubrea McDaniel (2,233.5 lbs.)

Second place – Harper Phillips (574.5 lbs.)

Third place – Nate Moreno (536.5 lbs.)

Fourth place – Kanoa Davis (525 lbs.)

Fifth place – Kallie Whidden (521 lbs.)

The top five overall fifth grade aluminum/brass/copper recyclers (along with the amount in pounds recycled) are as follows:

First place – Lauren Holden (761.5 lbs.)

Second place – Aubrey Krueger (454 lbs.)

Third place (tie) – Lucy Rodriguez and Molly Rodriguez (380.5 lbs.)

Fifth place – Katie Hunter (340 lbs.)

The FLC metal recycling program also recognized the top two overall steel/tin recyclers for the whole school.

In first place, Logann Wood recycled 11,720 lbs. of steel and tin.

In second place, Kallie Whidden recycled 4,900 lbs. of steel and tin.

For their efforts, the top FLC recyclers are awarded with a field trip to Sea World. However, due to COVID-19, the trip has been postponed until the park re-opens and permission to schedule the trip has been granted.
