Rain did not dampen the celebration of Earth Day at Missouri S&T on April 20. The event drew more than 900 children from Rolla and area schools and more than 40 exhibitors that provided hands-on activities. While visiting campus, University of Missouri System President Mun Choi stopped by the festivities.

“I was very excited to see the tremendous engagement of the faculty, students and staff at the Earth Day celebration at S&T,” he says. “It demonstrates our collective commitment to sustainability and stewardship of the environment.”

Stephane Menand, assistant director of the Center for Sustainability, coordinated the Earth Day activities. The Center for Sustainability thanks everyone for their hard work and commitment to educating future generations about environmental issues and how science and responsible behavior can help mitigate damage and improve our environment.
