"There’s not one silver bullet that can solve the problems with the environment," said Audrey Parker, program manager with CLEAResult Consulting Inc. Parker addressed concerned community members during the first meeting of the Humble ISD Go Green Committee on Feb. 21. "We've wanted progress, and some of the repercussions are problems," said Parker. An objective for the formation of the group is to assist the district in incorporating operating and design standards that are energy efficient and eco-friendly. "It’s easier to stay home and wait for Washington to do something," said Mark Krueger, assistant superintendent for Support Services. Krueger will head up the committee, which will also promote a healthier learning environment for students. ” Superintendent Guy Sconzo said that he was "skeptical" about community response, and seemed pleased with the standing-room-only crowd. "What a great comment about the community we live in," said Sconzo. "I’m thrilled with students who are here. It makes me feel good about the future." "I’m the parent of two asthmatic children," said Dave Martin, board president. "It’s very personal and close to my heart." "This is the first initiative of this type in the state that I know of" said Parker. "Schools are rivalrous, and I guarantee that other districts will read about this." The committee is the result of a 1997 initiative that established the Humble ISD Energy Conservation Task Force. The new committee will extend commitment to "operate in ways that are economically and environmentally responsible." Subcommittees were formed from the larger group in order to focus on specific issues. The largest group in attendance contained a mix of students. Rick Blan, Architect with PBK, commented on the necessity to "involve students and staff at all levels." Heading up the subcommittee are facilitators are Deborah Yocham, Kenny Kendrick, Tom Duffee, Karl Lundquist, David Hoffman, Alyssa Howell and Kim Huseman. Meetings are open to the public and the next two will be held on March 6 and April 3 in the Humble ISD Administration Building Board Room. Subcommittees may hold additional meetings. Results of the study will be submitted to the superintendent and board of trustees in April and May.
