Green Ribbon winners recognized in Gov's weekly address

Three schools who have received Green Ribbon awards for their efforts to decrease their environmental footprints were recognized in the Governor's weekly address.

Secretary of Education Mark Murphy, filling in for Gov. Markell this week, says Conrad Schools of Science and Richardson Park Elementary as well as St. Andrew’s School in Middletown have set positive examples for other schools in Delaware.

"All these schools have undertaken significant work to reduce their environmental footprints and promote student learning," Murphy says.

The Green Ribbon award is a federal program that recognizes schools who reduce environmental impact and costs, improve the health and wellness of students and staff and provide environmental and sustainability education
