Zachary Public Works Department representative Lovenia Williams visited Rollins Place Elementary and Zachary Elementary schools Dec. 8 to distribute “Recycling Starts With You” pencils to each student.

Rollins Place Principal Jennifer Marangos and Zachary Elementary Principal Dewey Davis, along with one student representative from each class, accepted the pencils.

“By teaching our children environmentally-friendly living habits, we can instill principles in them that they can carry throughout their lives,” Williams said. “The more we teach our children about conservation and waste reduction, the brighter the future is for them and the environment.”
