Superintendent's Honor Roll

Xiuhtezcatl Martinez - Top 24 National Changemakers Under 24
 

Xiuhtezcatl already has a very long list of accomplishments as an environmental activist, beginning with his first speech at a climate change rally at age 6. This most recent recognition was announced by the Campaign for a Presidential Youth Council and SparkAction in July 2013, which said these youth "are strengthening our democracy through what might seem an unlikely route given their ages: deep engagement in policymaking and governance." Xiuhtezcatl was chosen for this honor because of his activism in environmental issues, including convincing Boulder to pursue energy alternatives.
