After last year’s successful virtual dinner, the Northeast Environmental Partners — the Pennsylvania DCNR, Pennsylvania DEP, PEC, PPL Corporation, Procter & Gamble Paper Products Company, and Wilkes University — decided to host the 2021 Northeast Environmental Partnership Awards Dinner virtually as well. The online program included speeches celebrating the awardees from DCNR Secretary Cindy Dunn, DEP Northeast Regional Director Michael Bedrin, and PEC President Davitt Woodwell. The rest of the evening provided an opportunity for the awardees to discuss their accomplishments themselves through pre-recorded videos. The event as a whole was a great success, and we had a wonderful time honoring all of our award winners.
This year’s recipient of the Thomas P. Shelburne Environmental Leadership Award is Tom Kerr of Multiple Counties including Lehigh and Northampton.
