EKU Office of Sustainability
Congratulations to our graduating students Ash Albano and John McKinney!
Ash Albano is graduating with a degree in General Studies and a minor in Environmental Sustainability & Stewardship. She has been employed at the Office of Sustainability since Spring 2017 and her contribution to the work of creating a #sustainableEKU is a cornerstone for the future of this program’s success. Ash will be looking at career opportunities related to marketing, hopefully within the sustainability field. This summer she’ll be going on a few road trips to celebrate graduating -- Nashville, Bonnaroo, and Georgia! In the future, Ash would like to go to graduate school for ecology, focusing on coyote ecology in urban/suburban environments and how to mediate their conflicts with humans. Now that Ash is finished with school, she’d like to spend more time focusing on her artwork. She is incredibly talented, follow her art and adventure @ay.albano.
John McKinney is graduating with degrees in Wildlife Management & Political Science. He will be working as an Ungulate Technician in Chewelah, WA this summer. Eventually, he would like to be a wildlife biologist and work on conservation policy initiatives. John won a nationally recognized conservation award in 2018 for his efforts in the field during college and he is related to the man with the golden toe on campus, Daniel Boone. Outside of saving our planet, his hobbies include hiking, camping, hunting, and golfing (he’s almost as good as Tiger Woods #watchthisspace). Follow his conservation (or possibly golf) career @johnmckinney11.
We are so incredibly proud of you two and will miss your energy, hard work, and laughter. #EKU #EKUPeople #Classof2019 #sustainability
The semester is nearly over! In an effort to reduce the landfill waste generated when students move out of residence halls, EKU is hosting a donation move-out event. You'll find several labeled bins for Colonel’s Cupboard, Upward Bound, the Salvation Army, and International Book Project in the lobby of your residence hall. Habitat for Humanity ReStore donations will be placed in a different location in each residence hall, so ask your RA for the location.
