Energy Champion - Mercedes E. Harris, LEED Green Associate

"The Energy Leadership Award is important to the members of Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) because it showcases our commitment not only to our shared environment but also to our school. Through our training and advocacy, our students can teach others what it means to be aware of our physical surroundings. This not only reduces the amount of energy required to support Oklahoma State buildings but also reduces the energy bills in a cash strapped year. CSI would like to thank those at Facilities Management, as well as the School of Architecture, for their collaboration with us on this award."  Mercedes E. Harris  

Date earned: April 19, 2017

Engineering & Technology Management
College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology (CEAT)
Energy Champion - Jillian George, Administrative Support Specialist II

"CEAT Distance Education and Engineering & Technology Management wanted to participate in the Energy Leadership Award Program because we wanted to set an example for other departments to follow. Conserving energy should be a priority to everyone. Not only does conserving energy save our environment, but it also saves money. Getting into the routine of making small changes such as turning off all lights, turning off your computers and monitors, or shutting your blinds really does make a difference!"  Kristi Wheeler, Manager, Engineering Distance Education
