Citizenship Spotlight: Peter Nicholas Named Co-Winner of Greenlight Award

Freshman Peter Nicholas was named the co-winner of the Bedford 2020 Greenlight Award competition, a program that provides students with a framework, support, and incentives to create sustainable initiatives.

His project, "Change the World one Meal at a Time," addressed factory farming and the pollution and wasted resources it causes. With the goal of lowering meat consumption across the RCDS campus, Peter raised awareness through social media, a poster campaign, and a school-wide "eat vegan" competition. In the first 12 days of the project, meat consumption was down 376 lbs, and 24.5 million gallons of water were saved! Congratulations, Peter!
