KMB’s ANNUAL LITTER INDEX SURVEY shows continued improvement on McIntosh County roads

KMB conducted its annual Litter Index Survey in July. The survey samples the same roads and areas throughout McIntosh County and Darien each year. This year’s results showed a continuing trend toward cleaner roads since beginning the survey in 2008. On a scale of 1 to 4, with “1” being the best and “4” being the worst, the this year’s score was 1.49 compared to 1.58 last year and 1.84 the first year the survey was taken.

Thanks to everyone who is keeping our roads clean, beautiful and litter free! 

Keep McIntosh Beautiful Scholarship

CONGRATULATIONS!

Morgan E. Hay

2016 KMB Scholarship Recipient

McIntosh County Academy senior Morgan E. Hay is this year’s recipient of the Keep McIntosh Beautiful Scholarship.  KMB Executive Director Julie Sowell presented the $500 scholarship to Morgan at the annual Honors Night event at MCA on Thursday, May 19.

KMB began a scholarship program in 2013 to encourage students to become involved in environmental stewardship in McIntosh County and to develop the values, skills and sense of responsibility that translate to caring about, and for, their community surroundings.

Morgan, the daughter of Fred Hay and Renee Valle-Hay of Sapelo Island, was active with the MCA Student Conservation Corps, organized recycling projects and helped plant an orchard and garden at MCA.  She will be attending Georgia Southern University this fall.

Thank you to all the students who applied for the 2016 KMB Scholarship.  Keep up the good work you are doing for our environment and your contribution to keeping McIntosh County clean, green and beautiful.
