$25,000 Gift of Inspiration for Education Winner, Wright State UniversityWright State University is National’s fourth Gift of Inspiration for Education winner. The university plans to use the funds to boost sustainability efforts and programs on campus. They will leverage the money by issuing “challenges” for matching funds for the Office of Sustainability. The funds will be used for projects such as expanding the campus food gardens, recycling programs, community service learning tutoring programs in urban schools and more.

“This Gift of Inspiration from National Office Furniture is a wonderful model of corporate giving. Humbly, we promise to put the gift to good use,” said David R. Hopkins, President, Wright State University.

“We continue to be impressed and inspired by the vision, passion and resourcefulness that students exhibit. We’re very proud to support Wright State’s students and sustainability initiatives with the Gift of Inspiration. We know the students will turn today’s gift into a long lasting positive impact on the environment, campus and community,” said Kevin McCoy, General Manager, National Office Furniture, Vice President, Kimball International.

In addition, the company is supporting sustainability in education by an energy audit at an area high school as part of the Green Apple Day of Service program. Some of National’s resident sustainability experts have volunteered to team up with Jasper High School in Indiana to gather performance metrics on the building to conduct an ASHRAE Level 1 energy audit. National will then assist in analyzing the data as well as provide recommendations on reducing energy usage and creating efficiencies. The Green Apple Day of Service is a nationwide program sponsored by the U.S. Green Building Council to engage communities and businesses in creating healthier, more sustainable schools.
