Here’s more words towards the bottom middle of the page under Private Colleges on the CampusGreenBuilder website. It is also mentioned on New College Sustainability Efforts on The Dernogalizer. The KNIA/KRLS radio station blog also has an article. Here are some photos I took last Fall when Grandpa Ron and I were there.

Last Friday and part of Saturday Grandpa Ron and I were on the campus of Central College in Pella, Iowa. I am on the National Advisory Committee, which meets once a year on campus to advise the college president. We also had a tour of the new Education and Psychology Building which is one of the highlights of sustainability initiatives on the campus. It is a very beautiful building – and very GREEN! Go environment! Central is hoping to attain a LEED Platinum rating for the newest green building on campus.
