Girl Scout Lauren Kwartin, an eighth-grader at Rainier Middle School, worked with the Auburn School District during the holiday break to install two water bottle refilling stations at Auburn Mountainview High School.
Kwartin earned the money to pay for the installation and also worked on obtaining a grant from the City of Auburn Utilities to buy one of the units. The other station was purchased through previous fundraising, made possible with the help of Regina Grubb, who leads the high school’s Horticulture Club, and Principal Terri Herren.
The project was all part of Kwartin earning her Girl Scout Silver Award.
One station is located in the 400 wing, the other is near the gym.
Kwartin, daughter of Mat and Lara Montulli Kwartin, is the sister of Hunter, an AMHS class of 2017 alumnus.
