Last month, UH Hilo students and faculty members attended this yearʻs Hawaiʻi Sustainability in Higher Education Summit at UH West Oahu. They experienced the “Meeting of Wisdoms” panel, and connected with other Sustainability action-oriented students from different UH campuses.

In the event of the awards ceremony for the 2017 Presidentʻs Green Initiatives Award, UH Hilo students rejoiced:

  • Alexis Stubbs won the  the $10,000 Green Project Implementation Award for her  “Waste Sustainability Initiative through Vermicomposting and Composting” project.
  • Zoe Whitney won the S1,000 Green Student Leader Award and a Green Project Implementation Award for her “Choose to Reuse” project.

As Vulcans, let us continue to make the recycle, compost, reuse, and think about sustainability and our environment!
