Week 6 and a Great Blog from a Student

Week 6

I can’t believe it’s Week 6 already!  Along with 16 other events, we’ve got two District Championships on tap for this weekend, Pacific Northwest and Indiana, at which I expect we’ll see some fantastic Recycle Rush action.  I’m heading to Indiana myself to see their first-ever District Championship.

When the team was here, I took a tour of the University and fell in love with the campus.
