Congratulations to Jessica Ji, a Horace Greeley senior, for winning 2022 Linda J. Zhang Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability Award. The scholarship award recognizes her leadership and advocacy for environmental issues and sustainability. The awards were presented at the annual senior award ceremony at Horace Greeley High School on June 7, 2022. 

Jessica is a genuinely kind person, who keeps busy as both an enthusiastic and hard-working student, an athlete with two sports, and working on the family garden. In research class Jessica became interested in the problem of plastic pollution, and became active in environmental groups such as the Sierra Club and the Earth Day initiative. She is one of the co-founders of Greeley’s Global Disaster Relief Club, which deals in part with crises caused by climate change.

The Linda J. Zhang Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability Scholarship Award is sponsored by Linda J. Zhang Memorial Foundation to honor the life and passion of Linda J. Zhang. We hope the scholarship will encourage more students to use their energy, talents and creativity to help solve  pressing environmental challenges.
