Students present at Water Monitoring Council Conference

     Northern Garrett High School juniors McKenna Houser and Hailey Moore presented a poster entitled “Fingerprinting Sources of Nitrogen Pollution on Schoolyards in Western Maryland” at the Maryland Water Monitoring Council (MWMC) 23rd Annual Conference held at the Maritime Conference Center in North Linthicum on December 8, 2017.
     The poster described a project in which the girls are involved through their Advanced Placement (AP) environmental science class called the Student, Teacher and Researcher (STAR) Nitrate Investigation, funded by NOAA-BWET. Environmental science classes in Garrett, Allegany, and Washington County participate in this local scientific investigation in collaboration with University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science Appalachian Laboratory (UMCES-AL) scientists. With guidance from scientists and teachers, students worked in small groups to collect precipitation and runoff samples and answer research questions. They then discuss their findings with scientists to understand the role of western Maryland schools in nitrate pollution.
     The STAR program has been in operation for three years. The girls presented data collected during year two. The MWMC student poster contest is open to high school and college undergraduate students. Houser and Moore where the only high school participants.Hailey Moore and McKenna Houser

Drive One 4 Ur School

Greg Diehl and Gary Reichenbecher 
Diehl's Ford recently sponsored the Drive One 4 Ur School Event at their Ford dealership in Grantsville. Nine clubs/organizations from within Northern High School participated in the day's events, which resulted in $20.00 being donated to NHS for each test drive that was taken on that day. Pictured in the photo is Greg Diehl, owner of Diehls' Ford, presenting a check for $2,560.00 to Gary Reichenbecher, NHS Principal.  NHS and Diehl's Ford would like to thank everyone that helped to make this event a success.  A special thank you to Diehl's Ford for being our local sponsor of the Drive One Event.  Since Diehl's Ford began sponsoring the Drive One 4 Ur School Program, they have raised nearly $69,000.00 for the school.
