King County Executive Dow Constantine will honor two representatives from the Mercer Island School District (MISD) on April 26 with a King County Earth Hero at School award. Recipients share a passion for conserving natural resources and reducing waste.
Awardees from Mercer Island are Dr. Gary Plano, MISD Superintendent and Lucia Pirzio-Biroli, current head of local environmental non-profit Island Vision and volunteer in the community, school district, and at West Mercer Elementary School.
"These stewards of the environment are our heroes - for conserving resources, protecting the environment, and spreading the word about sustainable practices," said Executive Constantine. "I am proud to recognize them for their hands-on commitment to the planet."
Last year, volunteer Nancy Weil and Teacher Jamie Cooke .
The awards ceremony will be held at 4:30 p.m. at the Maplewood Greens banquet hall at the Maplewood Golf Course, 4050 Maple Valley Hwy., Renton.
