The Christian County public school system recently received a statewide honor for its effort in energy efficiency.
A news release says the Kentucky Efficiency Program for Schools honored the local district for earning all three of its energy efficiency awards.
The award system is reportedly based on the Energy Star seven step process for energy management. The awards are for putting a management system in place, creating goals and putting plans in action to meet them and for districts who follow through on those plans.
Christian is one of only seven school districts in the commonwealth to have completed all three steps. The awards were presented to Energy Manager Bob Valentine, school board Chairman Barry Cornelius and board member Linda Keller at a ceremony in Louisville Friday.
