Award Winners at CEED!
We’re proud to announce noteworthy awards for CEED Program & Site Director Ranger Eric Powers and CEED board member Veronica Weeks!
CEED’s favorite biologist and naturalist, Ranger Eric, has been named 2020 Environmentalist of the Year by the Long Island Sierra Club! The Sierra Club is one of the world’s largest environmental organizations, and the Long Island Group has been a leader in protecting nature in our region. The Sierra Club’s mission is to “explore, enjoy and protect the planet,” so it’s not hard to see why they value Ranger Eric as highly as we do. Congratulations, Eric!
In the very same week that we learned about Eric’s award, it was announced that one of CEED’s most active board members, Veronica Weeks, had won the 2020 Anton Banko Award for Excellence in Elementary Science Teaching, from the Science Teachers Association of New York State. This prestigious award is given after evaluation by a three-judge panel based on recommendations from teachers and administrators, student performance, as well as an essay on teaching methods.
Congratulations to Eric and Veronica! We are honored to have you on the CEED team!
