This week, several members of the Pennsylvania Wolf Administration joined environmental and educational advocates at the state Capitol to honor Mt. Lebanon High School and Wexford Elementary School for their selection by the U.S. Department of Education as 2018 Green Ribbon Schools.
“Pennsylvania’s Green Ribbon Schools serve as a model for teaching the value of environmental stewardship through the infusion of real-world experiences into the classroom,” said Secretary of Education Pedro A. Rivera. “I applaud Mt. Lebanon High School and Wexford Elementary School for their innovative efforts to promote conservation and environmental awareness, and thank them for their contributions to their communities.”
Rivera was joined by Secretary Patrick McDonnell of the Department of Environmental Protection and other leaders.
