Students attend climate march in New York

Kayla Ballenger has been an environmentalist for as long as she can remember, so when she had a chance to attend the People’s Climate March, a march on the United Nations Climate Summit in New York last month, the decision was easy. “I immediately wanted to go and show my support and get the word out that people in Georgia are interested,” Ballenger said. Ballenger, an environmental science major at the University of North Georgia's Dahlonega campus, made the 16-hour bus journey to New York with two other students from that campus, Rebecca Glaze and Tucker York, and activists from around Georgia.
