Charlie Maimone Sustainability Award
Last year, the UNCW Sustainability Committee presented the Charlie Maimone Sustainability Award to Charlie himself in recognition of his outstanding leadership in sustainability and environmental stewardship.
The second annual Charlie Maimone Sustainability Award was presented to Mr. Roger Shew (Geology and Geography). Roger is a Wilmington area native, UNCW Alumni, UNCW Sustainability Committee member and champion of sustainability.
ADDITIONALLY! A new award was created this year, The Carolyn Elizabeth Duffy Student Sustainability Award. You may know her better as Lizzy Duffy. Lizzy has been an outstanding representative for students at the university, in the community and in her travels. Her dedication and hard work was a catalyst in the approval of The Green Initiative Fund and many other projects.
The committee would like to congratulate these two amazing Seahawks for all of their time and diligence. However, we would like to also thank each and every Seahawk that has worked so hard this year to make the 2014/15 academic year such a success! What has been accomplished this year could not have been done without the help from each and every one of YOU!
