Clint Damuth presenting Linda PriceKing with GoGreen Challenge award at a recent Board of Directors meeting.

Chesapeake Bay Academy was recently awarded first place, for the second consecutive year, in the GoGreen Challenge for Independent Schools.

The GoGreen Challenge, sponsored by Trane and BCWH Architects in Richmond, is a friendly competition designed to encourage implementation of specific environmental policies and practical actions that reduce the carbon emissions generated by Virginia schools. Schools belonging to the Virginia Association of Independent Schools (VAIS) can become a certified “Green School.”

Clint Damuth, President and General Manager of the Trane Norfolk District office, presented the award to MaryAnne Dukas, Head of School and Linda PriceKing, Director of the Middle School, during a recent Board of Directors Meeting.

“It’s a pleasure to partner with Chesapeake Bay Academy and to be supportive of their efforts to be recognized as a leader among independent schools. We look forward to continuing to work with Chesapeake Bay Academy, navigating through new ways to conserve energy and improve savings.” said Clint Damuth.

The challenge consisted of 10 categories in which schools were awarded points for actions taken to reduce their carbon footprint. Some categories included Energy Efficiency and Green Buildings. Chesapeake Bay Academy’s points totaled 145 securing a first place win among the schools with less than 200 students.

A significant aspect of their 2011 award is the Campus Beautification Project. This new program was initiated for the 2011-2012 school year and was posed as a challenge to staff and faculty during the new school years’ orientation. Teams had three hours and a potential budget of $1,000 to create a beautification plan for the school. Teams supplied creative and inspiring ideas. This will be an ongoing project, some aspects of it taking several years.

Watch Damuth!

How have we managed to stay on the leading edge for 40+ years? It's a really cool story.
