The Surrey School District has won a Surrey Environment & Business Award.
The awards are presented to Surrey-based businesses or Surrey Board of Trade members who "have demonstrated exceptional dedication to environmental leadership and/or issues."
At an event Sept. 17, Surrey Schools was presented the top prize in the Large Business category (at right are former manager of energy management & sustainability Tracy Blagdon and Board of Education Chair Laurie Larsen).
In part, the nomination read: "Environmental sustainability isn't just one project for Surrey Schools. The district strives to incorporate environmental sustainability into day-to-day operations and integrate environmental sustainability into the curriculum taught to students."
The recognition acknowledged the district's many projects, including incorporating low carbon technologies into building designs, the districtwide Rethink Waste program, emissions management, and more. You can read more about the award HERE.
