Okemos Students Raise Funds for Solar Panels on Campus

OKEMOS, Mich. (WILX) -- On today's Schools Rule, a group of local high schoolers are putting their love of science towards helping their school cut down on energy costs.

News 10's Lora Painter caught up with Okemos High School senior Miles Bolton to find out how he and his classmates are learning not just about environmental science, but also about leadership.

Mile's dream started two years ago when he met a former OHS student who is now an energy professional Miles gave a school board presentation about solar energy earlier this year and helped raise more than $70,000 for the solar panel project. Miles said the panels could be installed as early as this spring or summer.
