Something in the water at Forestview Middle School


It’s not new news that Minnesota is nicknamed “the land of 10,000 lakes” due to the overabundance of clean water available at any given turn in the state the Brainerd lakes area calls home. What may be surprising to hear is that not every country is so blessed.

That’s why Forestview Middle School has joined the H20 for Life project, a program to fund water, sanitation and hygiene education for schools in Nicaragua.
