2014 Student Staff Award Winner: Eric Beeler


Eric Beeler, Student Housing Director of Grace Pearson and Douthart Scholarship Halls, has shown a commitment to sustainability leadership by promoting environmentally conscious behavior change and serving as a mentor to students living in Grace Pearson and Douthart Scholarship Halls. Students in these Halls comment on the infectious nature by which Eric approaches sustainability and acting as a responsible steward of our campus, community and world. 

Quote from Nomination: "Before I met Eric I did not truly understand what sustainability meant; I had just assumed that it was a meaningless buzzword. Now many of the men of Grace Pearson are more environmentally conscious and improvements around the hall are visible (unless no one is in the room, then the lights remain off!)."

Nominator: Sukhindervir Sandhu
