NCC Environmental Science Professor Erica Kipp-Sinanis earned a place in the 2021 Annual Report of the Arbor Day Foundation highlighting her grant-funded work to help green South Norwalk. The college also received kudos as the first community college in the state to receive Tree Campus recognition.
As shown in photo: education and service were combined as students at Norwalk Community College participated in the city’s project to green 50 Washington Plaza. They also learned firsthand about the ecoservices provided by trees.
Kipp-Sinanis says of the program, “I think it’s important that students are vested in the community they are a part of. It’s equally important for residents to see students involved in activities that make Norwalk a better place to live, work, and learn in.”
