Tomorrow marks the official start of training for the Sustainability Reps who will work with the Sustainable Skidmore Office for this academic year! You may know them as Eco-Reps, but we have changed the name to S-Reps to reflect that they are staff within the Sustainable Skidmore Office and will be carrying out programs that touch on all of the pieces of sustainability, not just the environment! That means the inclusion of equity and economy as a part of the education!
S-Reps are second-year students who will work both independently and with other student leaders like Res Life staff and Peer Health Educators in the buildings that they live in to carry out programs and education related to sustainability. Each residence hall on campus has one S-Rep, except for Jonsson Tower, which has 2. The students who have agreed to take on this position and responsibility are:
Jane Li: Howe
Margot Reisner: Wilmarth
Eliza Sherpa: McClellan
Shanna Williamson: Jonsson Tower
Amber Plante: Jonson Tower
Eva Hagan: Rounds
Joe Marto: Wiecking
Jeremy Rosen: Penfield
Jon Markowitz: Kimball
Allison O’Keeffe: Wait
Tessa Leverone: S-Rep Student Manager
It will be great to have them on board for the year, and I’m looking forward to spending the next few days with them!
