Three Rockdale Magnet School for Science and Technology students were honored this month at the Rockdale Soil and Water Conservation summer education program.

Danielle Nguyen, Jose Refujio Ayala and Sydnee Nicole Hairston were brought home top honors from the Natural Resource Conservation Workshop, which was held June 9-13 at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College (ABAC) in Tifton, Georgia.

Out of 159 counties in the state of Georgia, Rockdale had 17 students—the largest group this year—to participate this year, said Kenny A. Johnson, board chairman and district supervisor for Rockdale Soil and Water Conservation.

Johnson said he worked with Rockdale Magnet teachers, Shelley Seagraves and Lynette Clark, to get the students to apply for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Rockdale Soil and Water Conservation paid for travel, meals and dormitories for the students, Johnson said.

At the workshop, Rockdale Magnet student Nguyen received a first place medal in mining and $1,000.00 scholarship toward the college or university of her choice; Ayala received a first-place medal in natural science; and Hairston received a $500 scholarship toward the college or university of her choice.
