Four plus years ago a young woman from Oceana High School attended a Pacific Beach Coalition meeting, joined beach cleanups and habitat restoration events. Now, after logging 335.5 volunteer hours (most of them with the Pacific Beach Coalition – PBC) with Oceana High School’s volunteer program, Adeline Wilson has graduated high school a PBC super star.
Passionate about stewardship of the Earth and ocean, Adeline loves horses, the BTS band, dancing and bowling, and she gives the best hugs. As a senior member of the Jr. Ambassador program, Adeline led youth on cleanups of the streets of Pacifica and led the team to pick up thousands of cigarette filters at Seaview Bowling Alley because she loves bowling and the litter was not OK!
Adeline helped PBC with the award-winning Fog Fest floats, creating lots of ocean creatures and marching with pride. She is quite a joy to have at PBC meetings always arriving with fresh-baked masterpieces, making sure everyone gets a bite! Of course her baked goods are accompanied by big hugs and even bigger jokes… until Mom gives her the hook!
Since the COVID crisis stopped all cleanups in March, Adeline has joined the physically distanced restoration team protecting native plants and pulling thousands upon thousands of thistles from the Rockaway Headlands.
As Adeline graduates, the Pacific Beach Coalition would like to show how they appreciate her passion, her help, and her love for all things natural and has chosen her to receive the 2020 PBC Youth Scholarship of $500!
The Pacific Beach Coalition wishes Adeline a world of luck as she heads off to Skyline College and then on to Foothill college. Congratulations Adeline!
