Mr. Jackson honored as Earth Hero 2012

Students, parents, teachers and staff members who share a passion for environmental conservation will be honored by King County Executive Dow Constantine at the County’s annual “Earth Heroes at School” ceremony in April.

“These stewards of the environment are our heroes – for conserving resources, protecting the environment, and spreading the word about sustainable practices,” said Executive Constantine. “I am proud to recognize them for their hands-on commitment to the planet.”

The Executive will present awards to Earth Heroes on April 26 at 4:30 p.m. at Maplewood Greens, 4050 Maple Valley Hwy., Renton.

Special Recognition – committee’s choice 
Mike Jackson, Tahoma High School, Tahoma School District
Mike involved his PC Tech Repair students in repairing 129 old district computers and distributing them free to needy families in the community. He dedicated countless hours in learning the computer systems, having his students become Microsoft-certified in refurbishing so software could be purchased at a discount, and training families in the use of their newly refurbished computers.
