Nick Hood recently joined our staff as the community organizer. You may recognize Nick from his work as an intern at CCJ. Nick and his family have lived, worked and recreated in Washington County for their entire lives. Currently, he is enrolled at the University of Pittsburgh and is finishing his degree in Environmental Studies. Nick is passionate about the environment and hopes to see an increase in environmental protection to help ensure the health and well-being of his family, including his 4 nephews and 1 niece. As a part of his goals, he aims to educate and provide the community with the necessary knowledge and tools to combat pollution and corruption perpetrated by the large energy companies. When he is not working, he likes to play music, watch baseball and spend time with his family and friends.
In addition, Sarah Martik has moved into the position of Campaign Coordinator. She will continue working with our members and residents in Washington and Greene Counties but will be focusing on how people can get engaged in our campaigns across the region.
