Wake Forest Cool Cities Event Wrap

We had a great event Tuesday to honor Wake Forest as a Cool City. Students Leah Colbath, Savanna Harris, and Danielle Butler from East Millbrook Magnet Middle School did an outstanding job with a poem, display board, and speech about how it's so important for their generation to do something about global warming.

Thank you again to teacher April Grybosky and her students for their help in convincing to make Wake Forest a Cool City.

You can see tv coverage of the event from NBC 17 and News 14 here. Thanks to the stations for coming out.

What is Wake Forest doing to be cool? They're building a new LEED certified Town Hall, which will be one of the first in the state, and they've also taken a number of steps to increase the fuel efficiency of their vehicle fleet.

Thank you to Mayor Vivian Jones and the town of Wake Forest for its leadership.
