We have reached mission accomplished! We doubled our fund raising goal of $20000 and so far have raised over $45000 and, on May 29th, the solar panels will be installed on our school! We're hosting a big kickoff event on June 9th to celebrate and thank all of our wonderful sponsors. I think we're all a little surprised that this is finally happening; it was always such a daunting and seemingly impossible goal, but we threw ourselves into it and found that a lot of other people are just as excited about the environment as we are. We cannot thank enough all the people who donated money and time to our project; you all had faith in a bunch of high schoolers, and look how it's paid off. We're looking at moving on to bigger and brighter projects, like maybe wind turbines or better energy efficiency. However, we would be completely satisfied if the only effect of our project was that other schools decided to emulate us and join in the fight for a better future.
