(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.
