Above & Beyond Volunteer Recognition: Katie Belisle-Iffrig

The USGBC-Missouri Gateway is committed to recognizing volunteers who  contribute significantly to the Chapter, devoting time and talents “above and beyond” on a particular project or program. We are happy to recognize Katie Belisle-Iffrig of Code Green Collaborative for her leadership with the Green Schools Committee, the Green Schools Educator Think Tank, and the Sustainability Institute for Educators.



Katie was nominated by her USGBC-MO Gateway Green Schools Committee co-chair Ed Choklek for her deep dedication to sustainability initiatives with area K-12 schools and her leadership of the Green Schools Committee. Under her leadership, the Green Schools Quest has grown from 38 participants to nearly 50 participants. Additionally, the Annual Green Schools Event was revamped to increase student involvement. In 2015, Katie spearheaded the formation of the Green Schools Think Tank, a group of 25 educators who provide feedback to the Green Schools Committee for future initiatives and programs. Their periodic meetings have fostered a collaborative network of teachers who share ideas and best practices.

Katie – thank you so much for your contributions to the USGBC-MO Gateway’s green schools success!
