Today was an exciting day at Charlotte Prep! We were visited by Mecklenburg County Commissioner (District 5) Matthew Ridenhour, Mr. Matthews and Mr. Turton from Mecklenbug County Parks and Recreation . They visited with the 4th grade students to hear, first hand about their Monarch Project. The students walked them through the year-long project and explained the causes of the decline in migrating Monarchs and how they were working to help restore the milkweed population in and around Charlotte. Commissioner Ridehour praised the students for taking initiative and being leaders in the community. He invited the students to come and speak at a county commissioners meeting in the fall to further spread the word.
