Two local girls, Amy and Kristen Newman have donated a total of 92 hours to the Earth Team Volunteer Program (ETVP). This program gives individuals an opportunity to make a difference for the conservation of natural resources. Government alone cannot accomplish the job of conserving America’s renewable resources. The collective talents and energies of private individuals and groups also are needed. The two sisters assisted the Natural Resources Conservation Service staff located in the Brady Service Center with a variety of jobs, including the completion of a heavy equip application workload, data entry, map generation, field measurement surveys, miscellaneous filing and office organization and the answering of phones. Amy is 18-years-old and is currently a freshman at Angelo State University. Kristen is 14-years-old and a freshman at Brady High School. Both girls became Earth Team Volunteers through the encouragement of their father, John Newman, District Conservationist. Megan Wright, civil engineer and Robert Gober, Civil Engineering Technician, along with Newman, are located at the Brady Service Center.
