Problem Solvers in gear


Community Problem solvers at Flagler Palm Coast High School have started working on this year’s projects.

Project Eco Boosters’ goal is to encourage the use of energy-saving methods in the community so the negative impact of energy consumption on the environment is decreased in 2010 and beyond. Eco Boosters are creating a kit that will measure buildings’ effi ciency, and will offer analysis to community businesses and homeowners. Team members include Iryna Slyvka, Ben Jones, Petra Al-Hourani, Jennifer Henry, Irina Boycheva and Nathan Doutrick. Email the group at [email protected].

The Women Working With the Domestic Violence Shelter Team is focused on assisting the families at the shelter and raising awareness for the domestic-violence center. Team members include Daniella Shaw, Lauren Umpenhour, Savannah Goerlich, Abigail Recker and Kimmy Robison. Email [email protected].

Project Transformation is another Community Problem Solvers team with the aim to increase assistance to the homeless in the community so they have better options to re-enter society. As part of their project, the senior cosmetology class at FPC is giving haircuts to seven homeless individuals. The team is also collaborating with the Flagler County Free Clinic and hopes to start a partnership providing check-ups for the homeless.

Team members include Melody Sivri, Olivia Murphy, Amber Pinnock and Brittany Jenkins.

Other Problem Solving projects are FACES of Autism, Teen Pregnancy, Teens Making Good Choices and Project Park, an indoor recreational center for youth.

The FPC Future Problem Solvers are hosting a rummage sale 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 13, at Flagler Palm Coast High School, 5500 E. State Road 100.
