Amend: The Future is Us

This exhibit, curated by Rockville High School juniors under the direction of Montgomery History Curator Elizabeth Lay and RHS English teacher Krista McKim, explored environmental issues Montgomery County and the world currently face. The creative pieces put together by local students emphasized the state of today’s environment and the consequences of pollution. As one RHS student said, “[We] want us all to work together to make a change so that [our] children and grandchildren will have a world to live in.” Check out more of the students’ work for this exhibit on the Rockville High School website.
