My name is Olivia Bell and I am currently a sophomore at Mcdowell High School. I’ve lived at Lake James ever since I was born. My goal is to preserve and take care of the lake so that future generations can enjoy and witness its beauty just like I do everyday.  I enjoy photography, film making, playing piano, ballet, band, science olympiad, competitive swimming, and I recently joined the environmental club at my school. I was inspired to join the Lake James Environmental Association because of my grandfather, Dr. William Bell who was a part of the founding board.
