Notre Dame Awarded Recycling Grant

Ten schools from across the state of Tennessee, including Notre Dame High School, were recognized as having the top school environmental programs at the University of Tennessee football game on Saturday.  The schools were the winners of the 2017 Good Sports Always Recycle school challenge, which rewards schools for their programs designed to actively manage environmental impact and/or educate students and communities about environmental stewardship. 

Notre Dame faculty members Becky Light and Matt Irvin wrote the grant that will provide recycling containers for Notre Dame's stadium, water bottle adapters for the school's water fountains, and supplies for the Botany Club.
