What do Megan Guldner, Rhiannan Hoeweler and Alan Hagerty all have in common? They are all 2011 recipients of the Cincinnati Earth Day Celebration Environmental Awards.
Megan, a science teacher and ecology club moderator at Roger Bacon High School, strives to always make students aware of issues relating to the environment.
In 2010 Rhiannon formulated a personal goal of making the Cincinnati Zoo the number one zoo in the country for recycling cell phones. By the end of the year she gathered over 10,000 phones.
Alan jump started the University of Cincinnati sustainability program where he serves as student director. He brought recycling to the entire university and started the Bike Share program where students rent bikes to ride anywhere in the city to conserve gas.
