W.Va. Schools Selected to Receive Sustainability Grants


Sixteen schools in eight West Virginia counties will share more than $12,200 in grants for sustainability projects.

The grants are provided by the state Department of Environmental Protection and ZMM Architects & Engineers as part of the Green Apple Day of Service, which is scheduled for Sept. 26.

The day of service gives students, teachers, parents, and residents an opportunity to volunteer with local schools in an effort to create safer, healthier and more efficient learning environments.

The projects are in Jackson, Kanawha, Lincoln, Mason, Monongalia, Putnam, Upshur and Wayne counties.
