Rock Hill students win Rookie of Year award at Future City

A team of students from Rock Hill Middle School was honored as “Rookie of the Year” for their school’s first effort competing in DiscoverE Future City event in Columbus on Saturday.

The students conceived and built a replica of a city of tomorrow, and were asked to consider factors such as waste reduction, reuse, collection, separation, processing, recycling, related health and safety issues, energy efficiency, environmental impacts and cost in their design.

Matt Monteville, of Collins Career Center, who was adviser for the Project Lead the Way students said he was pleased with the first-year result and hopes to bring other Lawrence County schools into the competition next year.
