Jared Duval

Lebanon, NH

In his junior year, Jared founded and coordinated Students for a Sustainable Future. The group was involved in a number of issues, including global warming, composting, and recycling. As a senior, he led the SSF in an effort to prevent a 56,000-square-foot supermarket and 302-space parking lot from being built on a wetland adjacent to his school. After a nine-month campaign that involved circulating a petition, recruiting volunteers, letter-writing, canvassing, and frequent attendance at local zoning board meetings, the city planning board narrowly voted to prevent the project.
