Maya Appreciation Day Paddle

Sound Rivers

Sound Rivers staff took a much-needed breather to get out on the water last Friday to say a formal farewell to a much-appreciated intern, Maya Hardison.

Maya joined the Sound Rivers’ staff as a water-quality intern in September 2023, her first semester of her freshman year at N.C. State University where she is pursuing a degree in Environmental Technology and Management. She’s worked closely with Neuse Riverkeeper Samantha Krop, and was instrumental in the water-quality monitoring of Little Rock Creek. During the inaugural Lick Creek Walk, Maya took on a leadership role, sharing the skills she’s picked up with the large group of creek-walkers. She has been a huge asset to Sound Rivers in the too-short time she was with us.

On Friday, Sound Rivers staff gathered at Lake Johnson in Raleigh to celebrate Maya’s work. Thank you, Maya!
