Jets refueling by recycling one bottle at a time

SILER CITY — The whole idea of you are what you eat maybe ou​ght​ to be restated along the lines of whether folks understand what they're eating when they don't recycle, according to Jordan-Matthews High School freshman Yaritza Camacho-Monter and sophomore Jacquelinne Marroquin. 

During state-level competition for Family, Career and Community Leaders of America in early April in Greensboro, Camacho-Monter and Marroquin placed third in the Illustrated Talk category with their project on recycling water bottles.
