Again, succeeding beyond expectations, the BLM started a program designed around Aron’s successful experience, in which they hire high school students right after graduation, and give them part-time employment while they are pursuing college studies in wildlife management. Aron is the first student to be asked to participate in this program.
Additionally, the Audubon was so pleased with his performance that they asked him to accompany Audubon, the Arizona Game and Fish Department, and other NGOs officials to Washington, DC later this month to meet with members of Arizona’s congressional delegation and their staffs to report on the successes of the Game and Fish Department’s management of wildlife in our state, and to highlight the importance of the State Wildlife Action Plan program to Arizona’s environmental future. This is a great honor, and a tribute to Aron’s performance, demeanor, and abilities. We are very proud of Aron, and our many students like him, here at South Pointe High School!
