WASHINGTON, MAY 21, 2010 – Chuck Grassley recently met with Pavane Gorrepati, daughter of Krishmarao and Pramilarani Gorrepati of Davenport. Gorrepati, a sophomore at Rivermont Collegiate, was in Washington, D.C. to receive the Presidential Environmental Youth Award.

The Presidential Environmental Youth Award is given to a select number of students for their work in environmental service.

Grassley and Gorrepati discussed her winning project and talked about what led Gorrepati to be active in environmental issues. Gorrepati started several programs in her neighborhood designed to raise awareness about environmental issues, including a “Warning about Warming” program.

“I always enjoy talking with Iowans who have such a positive impact on their community,” Grassley said.
