BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - The South Brunswick High School aquaculture program is once again making waves with back to back honors as students prepare for one of the most exciting events of the year...the annual flounder release!
While removing their 22nd "Best in Show" award winning exhibit from the 2012 Cape Fear Fair and Expo, Instructor Barry Bey and students received notification the program was awarded top honors by the "Fish for Tomorrow" Conservation group.
The group's annual Kay Crocker Award is given to an individual or group who exemplifies service to the community and dedication to coastal resources.
With little time for celebration, classes were back to work on final preparations for the annual founder release into Davis Canal at Oak Island.
One major step in the process was achieved Nov. 5, when two groups of flounder housed in the tanks at South Brunswick High School were certified "healthy and suitable for release into the waters of North Carolina" by local veterinarian, Bill Rabon .
Oak Island Mayor Betty Wallace will join Bey and his students for the annual flounder release at 9:45 a.m. on Friday, November 16, 2012. .
