In the fall of 2017, the Borough Environmental and Shade Tree Commissions solicited applications for Student Members. This announces that Kyla Hunter (Environmental Commission) and Lucan Franzblau (Shade Tree Commission), students at Mountain Lakes High School, have been appointed as the first Student Members. In their role, Lucan and Kyla will serve as liaisons with the Mountain Lakes Schools, enhancing the connection between these Commissions and students; promoting student involvement in Commission programs; and providing access to student-relevant ideas on how to build environmental awareness and environmental quality in the Mountain Lakes community. Kyla and Lucan will participate in Commission meetings and contribute to the planning and execution of Commission programs.
The Mountain Lakes Environmental and Shade Tree Commissions welcome Kyla and Lucan and look forward to their service.
