This past weekend Rei Nakatani, a Heritage Academy student, lead a group of peers to volunteer with the Experience Green Sustainability in Golf conference and 1st annual Community Walk here on Hilton Head Island, SC. The purpose of the conference and walk was to raise awareness and to encourage everyone to work toward ways of building a sustainable community. People, planet and prosperity are all the building blocks for a successful community.
Rei was named to the Steering Committee of this organization in order to become an agent of change and to advocate for sustainable practices. She along with her peers, Jasmine Chee, Kelly Whaley and Rhea Bhagia, have a long term goal of bringing a recycling program to Heritage Academy and to the entire Junior Sports Corporation.
