Recycling and Conservation at GCSD

new logoGreen Task Force introduces new logo

A note from District Recycling and Conservation Coordinator Renee Panetta:

Since its inception in September 2010, the Green Task Force has been looking for a logo which would appropriately represent its function and role
in the district. The Task Force is a group of varied members: teachers and principals, students and faculty, residents and vendors. Each stakeholder in the group has actively worked in tandem with the district to suggest and evaluate recycling and conservation initiatives in the district. So, it has been important to come up with a logo accurately reflecting what we do. It seemed fitting to release our new logo for America Recycles Day, November 15, 2012, to recognize its importance to the GCSD community.

Earlier this fall, three students from the high school Advanced Art II class submitted logo entries for consideration. Voting was done by about 50 people (from all stakeholder-segments) who have had affiliation with the Green Task Force over the years. The winning piece was submitted by art student and GHS senior Katie Love. We would like to extend our congratulations and appreciation to Katie for designing a fantastic logo that will represent The Green Task Force hereafter.

About the artist:
Katherine Love is a senior at Guilderland High School, and is currently enrolled in Advanced Art II. She also participates in tennis, dance squad, peer network group, and is co-president of the class of 2013. She is looking to study pre-med after graduating. Katherine feels that being aware of environmental issues in our district is important, because the effects of our past mistakes are already showing impacts for the present and future. Even recycling a water bottle instead of throwing it in the trash can begin to make a difference.
