WKCTC celebrates Campus Sustainability Month with science seminar about saving energy and money October 21

October is Campus Sustainability Month and West Kentucky Community and Technical College is celebrating with a science seminar to discuss ways for saving energy, money and the planet.

The one-hour presentation, which is free and open to the public, will be held October 21 from 11 a.m. to noon in Waller Hall, Room 112. Presenters will be WKCTCs Biology Professor Bobby Ann Lee and HVAC Program Coordinator Mark Westerfield.

According to the National Science Foundation, sustainable development is about meeting the needs of present and future generations while substantially reducing poverty and conserving the planets life support systems.

Win-win action is a goal of sustainability and we are actively addressing energy use as costs are rising, said Lee. We hope WKCTC students, faculty, staff and community members come to learn about energy efficiency practices that will help us all now and in the future.
