Bishop Watterson Science teacher Will Reiss was recognized by the State of Ohio Environmental Protection Agency for his work creating the recycling program at Bishop Watterson. Mr. Reiss developed a program to dramatically increase recycling, resulting in 30,000 pounds of trash being diverted from landfills each year.
“He imparts his knowledge and commitment to students who choose to recycle at school and home,” states a certificate of appreciation. “He often arrives early to sort and organize the school’s recycling efforts and stays late to lead the Environmental Club he founded in 2009. Often referred to by teachers and students as the ‘nicest man in the world,’ his dedication to recycling and leadership in environmental education is exemplary.”
Congratulations Mr. Reiss!
