HOPKINSVILLE, KY (2/9/12) – The Kentucky Efficiency Program for Schools (KEEPS) has recognized Christian County Public Schools for earning all three of the KEEPS energy efficiency awards.

According to information supplied by CCPS Communications and Community Education Director, Heather Aubin, the award system is based on the “Energy Star Seven-Step Process for Energy Management.” The first award, “Stewardship,” requires the district to make a commitment to energy management and to put a management system in place.

The second award, “Champion,” requires doing thorough assessments and creating goals and action plans. The highest award, “Leadership,” is only given to districts that have followed through with their action plans and have completed all seven of the Energy Star steps.

Christian County is one of only seven school systems in Kentucky to earn all three awards. The honors were presented at a banquet at the KFC YUM! Center in Louisville.
