New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - October 20, 1995, New Braunfels, Texas 16 Cl Herald-Zeitung O Friday, October 20,1995 N B H S B E A T T-shirt sales help save South American rain forest By SHAWN LINDSEY Special to the Herald-Zeitung “Real leaders are ordinary people With extraordinary determination.” The New Braunfels High School Student Council knows the value of a true leader. These real leaders are what make up the NBHS Student Council, and their determination is evident. The NBHS “StuCo” has been busy wrapping up several of this month’s projects. The student council’s Eco-Energy committee, headed by junior Lesli Scott, is making a tremendous effort to help preserve the largest freshwater wetland ecosystem in the world. The goal of the council is to help add this valuable land to Brazils’ Pontanal National Park, which is located along Brazil’s western border near Bolivia and Paraguay. The land, which has been called “the East Africa of the New World,” is comprised of tropical forests, river corridors and perennial wetlands. The student council is selling environmental t-shirts. The council will save one acre of this land for every IO shirts they sell. The shirt sales will also help fund projects that will establish protected marine parks, ranger stations, and conduct biological surveys to ensure the well-being of one of the most biologically diverse and species-rich ecosystems in the world—the coral reefs. The goal of the council is to sell IOO t-shirts and save IO acres of rainforest. The “Rainforest-Adopt and Acre” project is sponsored by the Earth Foundation and the Nature Conservancy. The t-shirts cost $13.50 each and this project serves as a fund-raiser for nature—not the student council. The NBHS StuCo Safety Committee is also busy preparing for Red Ribbon Week. The week, Oct. 23-27, is designed to make students more aware of the dangers involved with drug and alcohol use. Lisa Wyatt, the Safety Committee chairperson, has planned special events for every day of the week. On Monday, Oct. 23, students are encouraged to wear their favorite college shirt for “Don’t let chugs ruin your future” day. Students will be dressing as nerds on Tuesday to show that they are smart enough to stay away from drugs. Wednesday is Red Ribbon Day. Students will be wearing red and the columns in front of NBHS will be wrapped in red ribbon. On Thursday, students are going to be wearing black to show the grave dangers associated with alcohol and drugs. Finally, root beer will be given out as a safe alternative to alcohol on Friday. Also, be looking for a message that will be woven into the fence in front of the football field. NBHS athletes will be demonstrating their support during this week as well. Volleyball players, the Monoceras, and the cheerleaders will be wearing red ribbons in their hair, and the football team will have red dots on their helmets. The student council has finally unveiled the new doormats which are now being used at NBHS. Last spring, the student council held their biggest fund-raiser ever to raise the money to buy the mats. The council held the Dallas Cowboys benefit basketball game in the Unicom Gym. The Cowboys defeated the NBHS faculty team in a close game. The fund-raiser was a huge success, thanks to the support of Dean L Zincone, MD.
