Sustainability is Not a Destination.
It is a Journey We Have Just Begun.
EarthX When Maria Boccalandro attended the first EarthX (then Earth Day Dallas) in 2011, she stopped by for a visit to the exhibit booth for Dallas County Community College District.
In the visit she asked if they had a sustainability program and was surprised to find out that one did not exist in the district. Subsequent conversations led to Maria being hired by the organization where she is now the Interim Dean of Instructional Support and Distance Learning at Cedar Valley College, and the Sustainability Director for the Dallas County Community College District where she is a key pioneer of their first sustainability program.
Since then she has helped to grow the sustainability team and programs across all of their campuses district wide.
