RLHS receives Smart School Award

Lt. Governor Mike Cooney came to town to award the students at Red Lodge High School for their recycling efforts. This is their second “Smart Schools” award and banner. Cooney lauded the all the students gathered in the common area for having recycled 15.1 lbs. per student in just the last four months. “Governor Bullock and I are proud of you! You are setting an incredible example. It’s unique now but your children and grandchildren will think it’s normal to recycle. The more we do today will become more important for tomorrow-our world, our community.” He said he would bring such examples back to the governor’s office staff. He toured the school hen house and said, “I know my wife is going to want this. We can have chickens in Helena.” Teacher Kate Belinda continued to challenge the students: “We got the green one, now we got the recycling one, how about the energy one?” They are in the process of raising funds to complete the solar panel project that will give 60 panels to the school and handle 7.5 percent of their average energy needs.
