Skyridge Middle School continues to be an environmental leader, winning a statewide award.
The school, along with others, was honored for environmental impact and energy efficiency last month. The recognition was an extension of a national competition, which named finalists from several states as Green Ribbon Schools.
State level awards were given in three categories: Environmental impact and energy efficiency, healthy school environments, and environmental and sustainability education.
