HellerSAVE tips of the week are often about energy - solar, wind, energy efficiency. Today we celebrate STUDENT energy and give thanks to this year's graduates who have brought their passion for care of the environment to their time at Heller. You have helped with recycling, turned off lights and projectors, planted plants on campus, brought in kitchen scraps for the Heller Recycling Trials, and more. May you retain your passion for the environment as you go forth to your adventures.
