Maria Boccalandro, attended the first EarthX (then Earth Day Dallas) in 2011 and visited the booth for DCCCD.   Maria asked if DCCCD had a sustainability program and found out it did not exist. Subsequent conversations led to Maria being hired by the organization and is now the Dean and Sustainability Director for DCCCD leading their first sustainability program, and has helped it grow the team and program across the campuses.
