Canmore School nominated for Emerald Award

Emerald Awards

The Alberta Emerald Foundations celebrates and showcases environmental leadership in Alberta, setting an example of environmental excellence for all to follow.  The nominees for this year have just been announced and Lawrence Grassi Middle School in Canmore has been nominated in the Education: School category.  LGMS was built as a LEED school and it was amazing to watch the process of the old school being recycled – crates going to central american schools with desks, computers, etc.  Kudos to Ken Riordin for his leadership in this project.
