Heather Price Earns Champion of Sustainability Honor

Heather Price WOHESC Award

North Seattle College Chemistry Instructor Heather Price, PhD, was honored with the Champion of Sustainability award during the recent Washington Oregon Cascadia Higher Education Sustainability Conference (WOHESC) in Bellingham. The recognition was given to Dr. Price (far left in photo) for her “exemplary achievement and commitment to advance sustainability through efficiency, conservation and direct action.”

During the conference, Dr. Price shared the climate justice work being done at North and noted the efforts of so many others at the college, which led to the honor. “Our work is inspiring similar work in Oregon, California and beyond,” she noted.

The WOHESC is a platform for inspiring change, facilitating action and promoting collaboration related to sustainability and social justice within the region’s higher education institutions. This year’s theme was Learning From Place: Solutions Beyond Boundaries.
