“Each semester the Principles of Leadership class takes on some sort of school or community initiative in order to work on influencing students, staff, and community members to be more aware or conscious of their behavior, character, or in this case, environment,” said Principles of Leadership teacher Jamie Olson. This semester, the project focuses on recycling and improving awareness about recycling at West Salem.

This project came with a lot of planning and preparation. First, the students had to be split into three groups. One group’s job was to talk to Mr. Malott, the principal at the high school. They would need to present their idea to him and get his approval. Once Malott approved their project, another group had to present their idea to custodian Mr. Kindschy. Kindschy would double-check that they had the right materials such as barrels and liners for the bins. He would also help them find out what they would do with the recycled bottles. The last group was in charge of advertising the project around the school. They put up signs around the building and arranged for announcements for the project.

The Principles of Leadership students decided to do this project to help the environment and bring awareness to the importance of recycling. “We want to show people that to be a positive leader, you should make a positive impact on those around you. I am helping by encouraging others to recycle and recycling plastic bottles myself,” says senior Mariah Winters.

The project so far has been successful. The students have put up their signs around the school and placed their recycling bins in the cafeteria for the plastic bottles. Students will be able to recycle their plastic bottles all year. “I think our project would become very successful by having all students participate and do their part,” said sophomore Teegan Hansen.
