Special Recognition Announcement:
Chuck Rouse, representing Mountain Bridge Trout Unlimited Chapter 46 from Greenville SC, presented the South Carolina Council Palmetto Trout Award to Cheryl Wiggins of Fluor at its July meeting in the Cabela’s Conference Center. The Palmetto Trout Award is presented annually to a corporation or individual in South Carolina that has made significant contributions to support Trout Unlimited’s mission of protecting and sustaining the state’s cold water resources.
For several years, Fluor has provided financial support for two of our key programs: Trout in the Classroom and Project Healing Waters Veteran Services. Trout in the Classroom is a program in partnership with 10 Greenville area schools providing students the opportunity to raise and care for trout from eggs to fingerlings. The students are responsible for their daily care. Mountain Bridge TU provides all equipment and maintenance. The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources along with Mountain Bridge TU volunteers conduct educational programs as well within the schools.
Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing is dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled veterans through fly fishing and associated activities including education and outings. Fluor’s financial support aids in the purchase of equipment and outing expenses, making the program free to our veterans.
Through the support of Fluor and people like Ms. Wiggins, we at Mountain Bridge TU can support and promote our continued mission.
