The Loveland City School District salutes Loveland High School (LHS) Senior Casey Smith who was named Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste District’s Student Recycler of the Year at a ceremony Thursday, Nov. 13.
“Casey has been an integral part of Loveland's recycling initiative for three years,” said LHS Environmental Science Teacher Tracy Burge. “He has been audacious, dauntless and intrepid in his approach to leading change. He has proven his leadership, initiative, and ambition in his moxie. He has educated hundreds of students who have in turn educated their parents, scout groups, church groups and athletic teams. His impact on the Loveland community has been extraordinary.
“His passion and dedication to recycling and sustainability led him to develop a class that allowed him to implement recycling and composting in the intermediate and middle school cafeterias. Because of his extensive knowledge and experience in recycling, his management and education of student participants, and, his cooperation with staff and custodians, the intermediate and middle school cafeterias are now zero waste facilities.”
