Johnston High School Band Makes Donation in Memory of Rachel Carson
In January 2018, Rachel Carson, 18, of Johnston passed unexpectedly. She was a senior at Johnston High School where she was a proud member of the band and she had planned to attend the University of Maine to study wildlife ecology.
To honor Rachel, the Johnston High School Music Department took donations in her name at their Friday Night Live event in October. Due to her love of nature, they chose to donate the funds to Audubon in her memory.
