Fish and Wildlife Club gets cash thank-you for helping with walleye tourney

Posted: September 4th, 2013

COMMUNITY OUTREACH THANKS – Sault Visitors and Convention Bureau Director Linda Hoath presents a $500 gift to officers with Lake Superior State University's Fish and Wildlife Club. Twenty students from the club helped with the Cabela's Master Walleye Circuit, held on the St. Mary's River Aug. 21-25. The Sault CVB, who hosted the circuit's stop in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., made the club donation on Sept. 3 for its help. LSSU's Fish and Wildlife Club has 60-plus members and is a seven-time recipient of the Most Active Student Subunit of the North Central Division of the American Fisheries Society award. Upcoming events include an annual chili cook-off that benefits the Kid's Fishing Pond in Rotary Park, and a community whitefish dinner to raise money for student travel to professional conferences. The club is also developing and implementing wildlife outreach programs for Sault area schools to promote youth interest in natural resources. Pictured in gray to the left of Hoath is James VanOrman, club vice president, with — immediately to the right and also in gray — Garret Price (president), Zach Prause (treasurer), and Megan Highlen (secretary).
