Mrs. Amy Boros, Science Teacher and Environmental Club Advisor at Perrysburg's Hull Prairie Intermediate School (HPI), has been awarded the Eco-Educator of the Year Award by the Science Alliance for Valuing the Environment (S.A.V.E) at Lourdes University. She was recognized for her work with the HPI Environmental Club, Project PRAIRIE, monarch butterfly conservation and HPI Solar Eclipse Day.
Amy, who has been an educator for 23 years with 9 of those at Perrysburg schools, created and implemented an after school Environmental Club at HPI with thirty 5th and 6th graders who have been active in their school and community with environmental education, recycling and conservation efforts.

All 800 5th and 6th grade students have been learning about native plants and pollinators such as bees and butterflies found in prairies. The students have been introduced to Citizen Science Research and the conservation of native lands and pollinator species through a partnership with the Toledo Zoo.
