Sydney Fraley

[President]

Hello there! My name is Sydney Fraley, and I am the president of the HSCCS. This is my second year as an organizer in the symposium. I have always been extremely invested in the mitigation of climate change. It feels like the one thing that anyone could help fix that will have a positive impact on quite literally everyone and everything on Earth.

My name is Alexandria Little and I am a senior at the Battle Creek Area Math and Science Center. I have been a part of the HSCCS since my junior year when I found out about the club.

What caught my attention was the ways that scientists are trying to find solutions to climate change and all the advancements made so far.

Everything the High School Climate Change Symposium puts out exists because of the collaborative efforts of the organizers listed above.
