Bravo to partnership to restore habitat

The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos this week:

*Bravo to the implementation of a competitive robotics program at Jamestown High School. School officials hope the program inspires students to not only compete but also pursue careers after high school in science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics.

*Bravo to Nyah Johnson, local student who was a top 10 finalist Nursing Assisting competitor in the nation at the 2018 SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference. Students from Jamestown High School/James Valley Career and Technology Center took part in the event, which had more than 6,400 students compete.

*Bravo to the partnership between farmers and ranchers and Arrowwood National Wildlife Refuge which is helping to return natural habitat to the refuge. Farmers and ranchers rent land on the refuge for five years, then pay for grassland seed to return it to native prairie. There are about 700 acres on the refuge that are in the process of being returned to natural habitat, with another 1,000 acres yet to occur.
