\We are happy to announce (and shine the spotlight on) our 2015-2016 Eco-Representatives!
Eco-Reps are responsible for encouraging a culture of sustainability in the residence halls in which they live. They educate residents about sustainable lifestyles and resources, assist with marketing and outreach efforts for sustainability programs, and plan and execute sustainability-focused events. They also assist with various sustainability events throughout the school year and maintain their hall’s composting program.
This year we have five awesome Eco-Reps in our residence halls! Sydney Stanton is the Eco-Rep for West Hall, is studying Environmental Engineering, and is passionate about sustainability because they hope to see our environment be preserved for generations to come.
Brenda Tellez is the Eco-Rep for McNary Hall, is studying Human Development and Family Sciences, and became an Eco-Rep because they hope to keep the Earth healthy.
Our Sackett Hall Eco-Rep, Margaret Halstead, is a Soil and Crop Science major, who is passionate about sustainability because the choices we make now will future generations.
Victoria Adams is our Finley Hall Eco-Representative who is studying Environmental Sciences with an option in Economics and Policy, and they became an Eco-Rep because sustainability is important to them because humans need a place to live and it is our responsibility to take care of our home and each other.
And last but not least, Taylor Bennett is our Poling Eco-Rep! Taylor is studying Climate Sciences and believes that we should make a positive impact today to insure the survival of natural resources in the future.
Be sure to say hi to your hall’s Eco-Reps and look out for the awesome programs these students will be holding!
