My name is Mackenzie Williamson and I am your 2012-2013 Environmental and Social Responsibility Representative. I am responsible for keeping students informed about important social and environmental problems, and making decisions to use BC’s sustainability funds in the best possible way.
My goal for this year is to expand on the sustainability efforts on campus, increase interest among students and staff, and create a prestigious reputation among the environmental activist committee. I hope to instill an eco-consciousness in the students of Bellevue College so that they can go on to be well informed citizens of the community. Several large projects I hope to complete this year include: expansion of the community garden, creating healthy food options for students, implementing alternative energy on campus, and organizing events that will teach students to live sustainably.
My compassion for the environment stems from a personal passion of backpacking, skiing, and almost anything else outside! Sharing my love for nature will help other students to understand what we’re protecting when we make sustainable decisions. Working together with the Student Environment and Sustainability Fee (SESF) committee, the sustainability office on campus, students, and faculty, we will make instrumental positive changes for the BC community!
