raising trout in the classroom, and developing fundraisers for the club
and much more; and

WHEREAS, With her ambition and drive, Erin Peskin was accepted into
the Washington Youth Summit on the Environment (WHYSE) program at George
Mason University in Washington D.C.; this summer, she will be working
with other students from all over the country, engaging in activities
that promote careers in environmental science, conservation, policy, law
or engineering, as well as connecting with prominent leaders and experts
in these fields; and

WHEREAS, The program will be held at George Mason University's
state-of-the-art campus and will encourage and inspire young leaders who
desire a unique experience focused on successful careers in this dynamic
industry; and

WHEREAS, George Mason University and partners National Geographic
and the National Zoo will welcome the nation's young scholars to
Washington, D.C.; and

WHEREAS, The Washington Youth Summit on the Environment offers
aspiring environmentalists and student leaders an unparalleled
experience with distinguished faculty, guest speakers, and direct access
to elite D.C. practitioners; and


WHEREAS, This exceptional young lady is the first student in the
history of Longwood High School to have been selected for this
prestigious opportunity; and

WHEREAS, Poised eagerly with enthusiasm and determined purpose, this
scholar now stands honorably, with just pride in her accomplishments and
in eager anticipation of future challenges, understanding and
appreciating the caring counsel and support provided by her teachers and
parents; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
congratulate Erin Peskin upon the occasion of being selected as a
National Delegate to the 2022 Washington Youth Summit on the
Environment, and best wishes for a future of purposeful success and
well-being; and be it further
