2014 Environmental Community Service Award Presented

The Pathway School and South Philadelphia High School are Honored

April 24, 2014

There are outstanding environmental programs taking place in schools all over the country, and Manko, Gold, Katcher & Fox, LLP (MGKF) is proud to partner with 6abc and Wawa in recognizing schools in the Delaware Valley for their sustainable efforts to support their communities.  Since 2006, two schools per year have won the Environmental Community Service Award (ECSA), each receiving a $5,000 honorarium to further their environmental programs. The goal is to raise awareness of environmental concerns and to recognize middle and high schools for their efforts in service projects that enhance and improve the quality of life in their communities.

The two winning schools this year are The Pathway School in Norristown, PA and South Philadelphia High School working with Lower Moyamensing Civic Association (LMCA). The impressive list of judges includes representatives from The Franklin Institute, the Academy of Natural Sciences, Fairmount Water Works Interpretive Center, the New Jersey and Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection and Delaware’s Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control.
