Student President

Tyler Daniel

Lincoln Park Academy

“Hi! My name is Tyler Daniel, and I am a junior in the International Baccalaureate (IB) program at Lincoln Park Academy. My concern for the environment started when I moved to the Treasure Coast in third grade. At this time, I learned about the blue-green algae crisis and its detrimental effect on the community. With the accumulation of knowledge on toxic algae blooms, my passion for protecting and conserving the environment grew. In the seventh grade, I became a member of Students4H2O, where I joined a supportive and passionate community of student leaders and environmental activists. My dedication to the organization then expanded toward educating others about the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and focusing on achieving Global Goal 3, Good Health and Well – Being. As an aspiring medical student, ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being for all ages is a subject that is not only important to me but is essential to sustainable development. Through Students4H2O, I developed the ethic of stewardship, which has aided me in leadership positions both inside and outside of school and will continue to guide me through my future endeavors. I am beyond excited to continue my work with Students4H2O, and I look forward to expanding our mission locally and globally!”

Co-Student Vice President

Sydney Daniel

Lincoln Park Academy

"My name is Sydney Daniel, and I am twelve years old. I am entering the seventh grade at Lincoln Park Academy. I have always had compassion and love for nature ever since I joined Students4H2O in third grade. While being in this program, I have learned about the ruinous effect that pollution has on our environment. I have also learned more about the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and their positive influence on our world. Specifically, my favorite is Goal #2 - No Hunger. I have been passionate about this goal because it is important that everyone has access to healthy foods for energy and wellness. With greater emphasis on the importance of educating others and spreading awareness, we can make the world a better place for all! Outside of school, I enjoy reading, bullet journaling, learning French and spending time with friends and family."

Co-Student Vice President

Noa Vignone

Jensen Beach High School

"Hello, my name is Noa Vignone, and this upcoming school year I will be a freshman starting in the engineering program at Jensen Beach High School. I have been passionate about the environment for as long as I can remember. In third grade, at Felix Williams Elementary, we did PBL’s (project/problem based learning units) focused on environmental issues like plastics in our oceans and toxic algae blooms in our waterway. It was then that I started to become more aware of these local and global environmental issues. I began to attend all local environmental events and joined Students4H2O in third grade and I have been a member ever since. Through Students4H2O I have learned about the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals. The two goals I am most interested in are #14 Life Below Water and #15 Life On Land, because I live on the water, I enjoy going out on the boat, I am intrigued by all animals especially sea life and am in awe of our amazing Earth. Also, I believe we have the power to help declining ecosystems thrive. I want more people to realize how their choices can negatively affect our planet, like driving your car too often, buying, using and throwing out single-use plastics, and the over-use of fertilizers and pesticides. It is important to me to stay involved with organizations like Students4H2O to help educate the public on the global goals and ways they can help our planet by making even the smallest changes."
