Kaylon Paterson
Morehouse College
 
Kaylon is a student leader at Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA. He is passionate about environmental activism and specifically about the effect that plastic has on the environment. Through the Atlanta University Center, Kaylon helped to organize the AUC Clean Up this fall which brought together over 50 students and sustainability organizers from three Atlanta campuses, Spelman, Clark Atlanta and Morehouse to conduct a litter pick up across the three campuses. The goal of the event was to raise awareness of the presence of the sustainability organizations at each school and the efforts being made by them to promote sustainability. Since the clean-up event, Kaylon has been able to form a more permanent coalition of the sustainability organizations from the three campuses into a council of students working towards sustainability in the Atlanta University Coalition (AUC). Kaylon has also recently started an organization called Amicus Terrae which serves as a forum for all of his environmental activism and research. Congrats, Kaylon. Keep up the great work!
