Benjamin Logan High School officials are thrilled to highlight the outstanding achievements of student Winnie Bodin, who is actively involved in the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Conservation Teen Advisory Council (conTAC) program.
She has taken the lead in planning an outreach event at the school. Dwight Wells, a collaborator with Purdue University on Honey Bee research, presented to the Environmental Science Club at Benjamin Logan High School.
ODNR conTAC is a unique initiative providing high school student-leaders across Ohio with a platform to collaborate and contribute ideas aimed at enhancing ODNR’s youth outreach and program efforts. The program brings together students passionate about natural resource conservation, outdoor outreach, wildlife, and those dedicated to making a positive impact locally and within the state.
After being encouraged by Spencer Reames and Sally Stolly, Winnie applied last June to be a member of the ODNR conTAC. As a sophomore, Winnie stands out as one of 70 students selected from across Ohio for the conTAC Class of 2024.
She is the sole student from Logan County to participate in this prestigious program.
“Winnie’s commitment and enthusiasm exemplify the spirit of conTAC, and the district is proud to have such a dedicated individual making a positive impact within the community,” school officials said.
