Nominations sought for Earth Heroes in Valley schools
February 9, 2010 · 2:12 PM
King County wants to honor the students, teachers, staff, school volunteers, programs or entire schools that have contributed to both environmental protection and student environmental education. Nominations for the 2010 Earth Heroes at School are due March 1. Winners will be honored at King County’s ninth-annual Earth Heroes at Schools recognition event in April.
Last year, two local Earth Heroes were honored:
• Meg Handy, the librarian at Fall City Elementary School, who obtained grant funds for solar panels for the school and and led the effort to restore a school garden.
• John Spiess, a teacher at Twin Falls Middle School in North Bend and adviser for the environmental club, who organized his students to practice waste reduction and recycling
