Piper is a freshman at the University of Utah. This is her third year on the National Youth Leadership Council. In 2018, she worked with her Roots and Shoots group to pass a resolution through the Utah State Legislature which recognized the impacts of climate change and encouraged emissions reductions. As an advocate of youth environmental activism, she organized Utah’s first Youth Environmental Summit in 2017. Additionally, in 2018, we gathered over 100 students from around the state to help pass a Climate Change Resolution through the Utah State Legislature. When she is not volunteering working with Roots and Shoots, Piper enjoys backpacking and cross-country skiing with her friends and family.
