Bill Clinton Speaks at Rupp Arena

In a post-Earth Day address Monday, former President Bill Clinton encouraged Fayette County students to follow through on their efforts to ensure that people and nature exist in harmony. In an address to 5,000 to 6,000 students, teachers, parents and politicians at Rupp Arena, the 42nd U.S. president praised the efforts of the Bluegrass Youth Sustainability Council, a coalition of students that promotes environmental awareness. The students encourage others to conserve energy and try to live in a way that doesn't deplete resources.
