“I want to reduce waste on college campuses. They currently have a reputation for being wasteful relating to parties, but that can be changed with how we address filling stations of liquids. Rather than wasting liquid, which in some countries isn't clean, we can just limit the amount we use so that more is saved.”

Millennium Fellowship Project: Project 19.7

Project 19.7 aims to mitigate water waste from the automatic beverage dispensers that are used at various locations by not allowing for overflow and by making spillage more difficult.

About the Millennium Fellow

“It is an excellent way to help people out by leading a project to help raise awareness and make the world better.”

Millennium Fellowship Project

Every day, America wastes 4.5 pounds of trash per day. Litter Art Project plans to reuse trash and recyclable items so that the trash can be implemented into an art project. The art project will award a participant with creating a statue made of trash that will be on campus for the world to see. The hope is to try and reduce the amount of trash used by students so that we aren't wasting as much on a daily basis.

About the Millennium Fellow

On January 12th, 2016, Joe Lofton achieved Eagle Scout Rank. For him, that was the greatest achievement of his life, and to this day thinks that there is nothing too difficult for him.

“I think this is an amazing program and an amazing opportunity to make a difference in the community and the world. I have always loved community service, starting new programs, and making a difference in the community, the world, and people's lives. This provides me the chance to create a 5K in memory of my dad and to spread awareness about heart attacks and heart disease. Through this program, I will be able to raise money and educate people about heart attacks, so one day, no one else will have to lose a loved one to a heart attack.”

Millennium Fellowship Project

The Richard Lowell Weaver Heart Attack Awareness 5K: I will be organizing a 5K on Widener's campus. There will be food and drinks to buy at the 5K and merchandise to buy, to help raise money. Anyone can come: students, family, friends, pets, anyone. I will read why this is important to me and about my dad before the 5K. The money will then be donated to the American Heart Association in memory of Richard Lowell Weaver, who is my dad.

I will continue to advertise and have people sign up. I will then measure my impact by the amount of people that show up to the 5K and the amount of money that I am able to raise and donate to the American Heart Association in memory of my dad. My goal is to raise over $2,000 to donate, and possibly have this be an annual event.
