Columbia University recently received a star-a green star to be exact-by the Professional Grounds Management Society (PGMS) with an Honor Award in the Society's 2010 Green Star Awards competition. The award was given in the Urban University Grounds category for exceptional grounds maintenance. The ceremony was held on October 29 during the Society's annual expo in Louisville, KY
"This is a great honor to receive," said Frank Molina, Columbia University Facilities' supervisor of grounds. "It not only recognizes the efforts put in by our staff, but also Columbia University's commitment toward enriching their students', staff's, and visitors' lives through green spaces."
