(Henderson, NV) – On June 17, 2014 at the Henderson City Council Meeting, Tronox received a special commendation from members of the Mayor and Council for their donation of Arbor Day school calendars, which showcase environmentally friendly focused drawings submitted by local students. The calendars are sponsored by Tronox Henderson plant in partnership with the city of Henderson Arbor Day Foundation.
This is the second year Tronox funded the design, creation, and printing of the calendars as part of their effort to give back to Henderson and promote an ecofriendly community. The calendars feature 12 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 the city of Henderson. The City of Henderson Mayor & Council selected the winning drawings featured in the calendar.
Rick Stater, Henderson Plant Manager of Tronox, says, “At Tronox, we value giving back to the youth in our community, and emphasize promoting environmental responsibility at a young age.” He goes on, “We would like to thank the City of Henderson Mayor & Council for recognizing Tronox’s dedication to civic service, as this donation complements our model of corporate stewardship and sustainability.”
