Academy Students Network with Professionals at the FSAWWA State Conference

Students in the Academy of Coastal & Water Resources attended the annual Florida Section of the American Water Works Association (FSAWWA) conference in Orlando, Florida on November 30th, 2021. Students networked with numerous industry professionals in the water management and wastewater management fields. There were over 100 booths representing a variety of career interests such as water and wastewater management, mechanical engineering, environmental engineering, product sales, Geographic Information System mapping, environmental science and water conservation, and municipality utilities and management. This field study is always the highlight of the year for our Academy students. Thank you to FSAWWA for sponsoring our trip and to Steve Soltau and Peggy Guingona for coordinating the high school activities at the conference.  Additional  appreciation to our academy board Chair, Tony Cubbedge with St. Johns County Utilities, for presenting at the conference on the value of high school academy partnerships and for speaking with our students about career opportunities.
