TOMS RIVER, N.J. - Nov. 12, 2019 - PRLog -- Local Toms River student Rory Leadbeater has all the attributes of an emerging leader – responsible, confident, intelligent, creative, eco-conscious and an agent of community change. Rory demonstrated all of these attributes and more as she completed her Girl Scout Gold Award with the grand reveal of the outdoor classroom wall murals at the Save Barnegat Bay's EcoCenter last month.

The EcoCenter is located in the heart of Toms River and helps to promote citizen-government-science conservation efforts in research, volunteerism, stewardship, partnerships, resiliency and education. "It was an absolute honor for me to be able to create these wall murals for the EcoCenter and I encourage everyone to stop by and learn all about the programs available at Save Barnegat Bay," said Leadbeater.

The artistic side of Leadbeater has been blossoming within her for as long as she can remember. "I've always wanted to tie art into my future career," said Leadbeater. "At Toms River High School North, I've had multiple opportunities to explore graphic design. This year, we created a club called Skip the Straws to help spread awareness of limiting plastic use in our community. Our goal is to work towards gradually eliminating single use plastics as they are the key to destruction of nature. I was able to create our logo and it really got me interested in using my creative side to improve the environment around us."

Over the summer, Leadbeater had the opportunity to shadow at Design 446, a full-service marketing firm in Manasquan, NJ. "I was given a golden opportunity to learn more about the field of graphic design," said Leadbeater. "This company is very involved with each step it takes to run a successful design company and I was more than glad to be a part of it. I was able to learn about each aspect, and possibly which aspect I plan on majoring in college."

Throughout all her endeavors, both past and present, one thing's certain – Rory's future is very bright. Just ask her family, friends, peers, mentors, teachers and all those who visit the Save Barnegat Bay EcoCenter.
