Bailey Peterson, 2018

Bailey Peterson is a graduate of Boone County High School. She is currently studying Environmental Science at Northern Kentucky University.

"I love that my passion and positive outlook for conserving resources on Earth is actually a job that I will get to dedicate a large part of my life to doing. It's important to me to do my heart's work and Northern Kentucky University sets me up to learn about environmental topics and take specific classes that make me better at what I do! As I get deeper into my major, the classes honestly just excite me more and more for my future in conservation and sustainability. NKU has also allowed me to take advantage of an internship as Sustainability Assistant and learn to communicate the importance of sustainability in higher education to students and staff!"

Bailey wants to follow in the footsteps of her boss, Sustainability Manager Tess Phinney at NKU, and become involved in sustainability and conservation efforts in higher education by teaching environmental classes to spark student involvement like Tess did with her. "I believe college students have a HUGE pull in making changes, so working with students and creating a hands-on learning experience for students at a college campus would be my heart's desire!"
