Chase Post

Signal Mountain, Tennessee

Chase Post, 17, of Signal Mountain, Tennessee, a junior at Signal Mountain Middle High School, organized a recycling effort at his high school’s home football games; for each event, he recruited volunteers, set out recycling cans and continuously sorted recyclable materials throughout the evening. Chase, whose team collected about a dozen bags of recyclables each game, first started this initiative as a member of his school’s service-oriented Leo Club.
