Alumna Wins Sustainability Award

Fine Arts alumna Michelle Brickner (CCAD 2001) was recently selected as a Champion of Sustainability by Entrepreneurs for Sustainability (E4S) in Cleveland.

Brickner is an art teacher and organic community garden coordinator at Saint Martin de Porres High School in Cleveland.

“E4S champions carry the special distinction of being nominated by their peers for the work they do as implementers as well as for the inspiration they provide for others,” said E4S Interim Executive Director Michael Dungan at the event recognizing the nominees. “We welcome this year’s group to our growing roster of individuals who are embedding sustainability principles in their organization’s operations, product design, company culture, and client services.”

Founded in 2000, E4S is a business network focused on sustainability and entrepreneurship. Brickner was among seven individuals nominated and recognized.
