At Glenpool Middle School, Carolyn Mathews’ job is
maintaining the media center, but that’s just the beginning of what
Carolyn does. She also organizes and oversees a successful recycling
program at the school. To help make Glenpool citizens more aware of the
need to conserve natural resources, she created a program exploring the
human population explosion, and she was the driving force behind storm
drain stenciling in Glenpool. Her 6th and 7th grade students studied
the River Parks system and learned that an entire community must work
together to manage the environment.
That’s the message that
she carries with her always, and her sphere of influence continues to
grow. More storm drains need to be stenciled; more items need to be
recycled; and more middle schoolers will cross her path next year. For
the influence she exerts and the many programs she carries out, CAROLYN MATHEWS IS GOOD NEWS FOR OKLAHOMA’S ENVIRONMENT!
