Haywood Community College is a finalist in the Second Nature 2012 Climate Leadership Awards, a national competition among colleges and universities to earn the title of “Most Innovative Climate Leader.”
HCC is the only college in North Carolina that was named as a finalist and one of 20 nationwide.
“It is an honor for HCC to be recognized as a finalist for this prestigious award and for its community-based approach to teaching, practicing, and modeling sustainability,” HCC President Rose Johnson said. “Plus, it is wonderful that the community has a chance to view and vote for HCC’s sustainability video, which is part of this competition.”
HCC and other finalists have produced and posted a sustainability video that can be viewed at www.planetforward.org/climate-leadership-awards. The public is urged to vote for HCC through April 14. The finalists with the most votes will be profiled by Planet Forward’s “Move the Planet” conference the week of April 16.
