Hillsborough parents go-go green
Called the Environmental Improvement Force, the group started with PTA committees at Dale Mabry Elementary and Coleman Middle schools in South Tampa. After inviting others to join, the force now counts about 50 members.
Its push comes as Hillsborough Superintendent MaryEllen Elia is touting a greener future -- one that could help cut down on the district's energy bills. Read more about her initiative to merge education and conservation by recruiting students to become energy patrols here.
School Board member April Griffin will speak at the next meeting of the Environmental Improvement Force on Wednesday, 9:30 to 11 a.m., at St. Mary's Parish, 4311 San Miguel St., 33629.
