Love of outdoors sets Green's career path

Lucas Green loves the outdoors and wants to make sure future generations have the opportunity as well.

"I've been surrounded by nature, and maintaining the environment is important to me," the 2013 Ellsworth High School valedictorian said. "It should be the responsibility for everyone."

As valedictorian, Green will lead a class of 108 as they will accept their diplomas 7 p.m. Friday in the new high school gymnasium.

"Valedictorian was something I was shooting for," he said. "I've always liked math and science classes."

Green plans to attend the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities to pursue an engineering degree. He is unsure of the specific field at this time.
