Rock Hill School District News For February 14, 2013 #rockhill #rockhillschools

South Carolina Recycling Champs
Keep America Beautiful, the nation’s leading nonprofit that brings people together to build and sustain vibrant communities, announced yesterday the winners of the “Recycle-Bowl,” the first nationwide recycling competition for elementary-, middle- and high-school students.
While a school system in Indiana won the national award, the Applied Technology Center placed first in S.C.’s “Recycle Bowl,” with a prize of $1,000, and Finley Road Elementary placed second. Their selection was based  on having the highest per-capital recycling rates. Recycling coordinators at the winning schools are Pam Jackson (ATC) and Donna Elliott (FR).
Smiling from ear to ear hearing the announcement, Assoc. Supt. Tony Cox stated: “We’ve developed an innovative recycling relationship with the City of Rock Hill, and Rock Hill Schools can now boast that it has the premier recycling program of K-12 in the state.”
