(Bradenton, Fla., Sept. 20, 2018) — State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF) received the Green Schools Award for higher education institutions from Keep Manatee Beautiful at a ceremony on Sept. 13. Kevin Baldwin, supervisor of maintenance operations for Facilities Management, accepted the award for SCF’s environmental practices on behalf of SCF.

The Green Schools Award honors educational institutions that have a litter and graffiti-free campus, landscape using native Florida plants, recycle, conserve natural resources and contribute to the community’s physical environment. Green Schools is one of more than 20 nomination categories including neighborhoods, individuals, youth organizations, media and businesses. According to Keep Manatee Beautiful, the recognition fosters goodwill and the continued participation of those who give of themselves to help keep our community and environment beautiful and safe.

SCF has three locations: Bradenton (100 acres), Venice (100 acres) and Lakewood Ranch (10 acres). The college also has purchased a 74-acre site in Parrish, in the college’s rapidly growing service area east of I-75 and north of the Manatee River, for a future site.
