Keep High Point Beautiful Youth Council

Welcome to our two new members of the Keep High Point Beautiful Youth Advisory Council!

We are excited to welcome Joseph Funderburk and Jasmine Burke to the team. We can't wait to hear their ideas and visions for our community as they get the chance to learn more about the specific environmental challenges that we face in our community and gain firsthand experience and knowledge of ways that we can improve our community
