The University of Virginia’s Committee on Sustainability honored members of both UVA and Charlottesville communities with Sustainability Leadership Awards for 'leadership in protecting the environment.' We're proud to share that former Tandem science teacher Christine Hirsh-Putnam received one of the two community awards given. They described Christine as "a retired teacher and “super citizen” who focuses on education to help others recycle more effectively, and to develop sustainable habits." Congratulations, Christine! We're glad to know she is still inspiring stewardship in the greater community after leading Tandem's efforts for so many years.
