Federal official tours Middleton High's sustainability projects

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Some local students had the ear of the White House on Thursday.

Nancy Sutley, chair of the White House Council on Environmental Quality, spoke with some students at Middleton High School.

Sutley also got a look at some of the sustainability features and projects the school has implemented, from energy-efficient lighting in the fieldhouse, to solar panels that heat the pool.

"We're especially proud of our accomplishments and our commitment to provide real learning opportunities for our students regarding the environment," Asst. Superintendent Tom Wohlleber said. "And we want to continue to focus on that as a school district."

Middleton High School was recently selected as one of the U.S. Department of Education's green ribbon schools for its efforts to reduce energy and provide a healthy learning environment.
