Above + Beyond Volunteer Recognition: Lynda Morrison

LMorrison 12-17 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 Lynda Morrison of St. Louis University, a committed member of the USGBC-Missouri Gateway Chapter Advocacy Committee.

 

Lynda was nominated by Linda Daniel, fellow Advocacy Committee members, for her work to support numerous congregations as they benchmark their energy use and implement energy efficiency projects.

 

Lynda has been involved with the USGBC-Missouri Gateway Chapter for several years, consistently serving as an eloquent advocate for the importance of environmental work by houses of worship.  Faith-based organizations own and operate over 400,000 buildings in the United States. Implementing sustainable strategies in the operation of their facilities allows congregations of all faiths and denominations to save money, reduce their environmental impacts, and exemplify the teachings of creation care.

Lynda has supported her own congregations, St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church and First Congregational Church in Webster Groves, to benchmark their energy use in ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager and then work to reduce their energy use. And she has worked diligently over the past several years to mentor other congregations to do the same.

 

Kudos to Lynda for her hard work! Volunteers like Lynda are crucial to our work to make every building a green building!
