S3B16, Dr Grant Rivera and Lemon Street School's Rebirth

How do you get a historian excited? You rebuild a historical building that was torn down and you bring it back to life. That’s exactly what Grant Rivera and the Marietta School Board have decided to do. The site of the old Lemon Street High School, the black high school in Marietta, was torn down after integration in the 70’s. Now it is being rebuild to house Marietta City Administration offices. There is also work being done to use the Lemon Street grammar school across the street.

Marietta high schooler and non-profit founder, Ria Uppalapati

Ria Uppapati started a non-profit at 16 years old: Forever Earth, Inc. Bill met Ria and her Mom at a North Marietta Community Garden event and she had a lot to share, so we decided to do an interview. She is working to reduce plastic locally, starting at her Dad's restaurant (Hemingways). She has also reached out to other businesses to recruit them to use metal plates with paper on top, a step in the right direction to reduce plastic waste. Busy young woman!
