2011 – present

At Waynesboro, the PIR collaborates with teachers to identify opportunities and provide resources to expand the classroom experience.  Science classes use the local South River as an outdoor laboratory for ecology and the natural history of water resources within walking distance of the school.  Exciting developments include the addition of a classroom trout tank and an initiative for developing educational programs through the Virginia Museum of Natural History.

Together with the high school guidance staff, the PIR consults with students on college choices and scholarships.  Campus visits during Fall Open House and special events are coordinated and supported through the program.
