A ‘Green Leader’

— Students at Christ Episcopal School in Rockville understand the importance of a green future at school and in the community. In 2008, CES was the first independent school in Montgomery County to be named a Green School by the Maryland Association for Environmental and Outdoor Education. Today, CES continues to be a “Green Leader” among independent schools in Maryland. Recently Clean Currents, a Rockville-based electricity supplier, partnered with CES to launch the school’s Green Neighborhood Challenge. The goal was to encourage as many households in Maryland and D.C. to switch to renewable wind-powered electricity. On May 23, Kristin Schultz, Clean Currents residential programs manager, presented CES with a donation of $400 for being a champion Green Neighborhood Challenge participant. The donated funds will go toward CES Green School activities. CES was also awarded the 2012 Excellence in Recycling Award by Montgomery County, Maryland Division of Solid Waste Services.
