Evanston Township High School senior Brenda Martinez is one of 50 students chosen nationwide to participate this summer in a youth summit about public transportation. “Generation Green on Board: A Youth Summit to Advance Public Transportation” will be held in Washington, D.C., where students from around the country will explore environmental benefits of public transportation and the role of local and federal policies in the use of public transit. Brenda, who learned about the summit opportunity through her membership in the ETHS junior chapter of the Society for Hispanic Engineers, will meet lawmakers and congressional leaders during her visit. She will discuss with her peers how public transportation helps build communities and how public transportation is helping to shape the future.
