Earlier this week, senior Samantha Banz was given the Certificate of Commendation by City of Henderson Councilwoman Debra March.
The presentation took place at the annual GreenFest in honor of Earth Day at the Springs Preserve last week.
"She did a great job, and we are very happy, and feel very fortunate to have such a dedicated and wonderful daughter," Sonja Rogers-Banz, Samantha’s mother, said. "She shines inside and out."
Earlier in the year, Banz was invited, along with other members of CCSD's "green" Eco-Ambassador program, to speak in front of the CCSD Board of School Trustees. She spoke about the green movement at Liberty High School along with her experiences at the National Green School Conference in Florida.
