(HENDERSON, Nev.) – On May 19, 2015, at the Henderson City Council meeting, Tronox
received a special commendation from the mayor and council members for its donation of Arbor
Day school calendars. The calendars showcase environmentally friendly focused drawings
submitted by local elementary school students. The 12 students whose drawings were selected
attended the meeting and were presented with calendars by Tronox staff.
This is the third year Tronox funded the design, creation and printing of the calendars as part of
its effort to give back to Henderson and promote an ecofriendly community. The calendars
feature drawings submitted by 4th grade students as part of the Arbor Day Foundation’s annual
contest to promote ecofriendly practices. Each drawing promotes environmental responsibility in
Henderson. The City of Henderson Mayor and Council selected the winning drawings that are
featured in the calendar.
Tronox’s Henderson Plant Manager Rick Stater said, “At Tronox, promoting environmental
responsibility is part of our company initiative to ensure a healthy community. We are proud to
support this cause and give students a chance to showcase their artistic abilities. We would like
to thank the City of Henderson Mayor and Council for recognizing Tronox’s dedication to
corporate stewardship and environmental sustainability.”
Each year, Tronox employees hand-deliver the calendars to the main offices of each elementary school for use in all 4th and 5th grade classrooms.
