Congratulations to our Energy & Sustainability Specialist, Rheannon DeMond, on being selected as one of three award recipients of the Kate Goldstein Fund for Emerging Professionals by the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association (NESEA). To date, the Kate Goldstein Fund has raised almost $33,000 to honor Kate’s legacy of support for the next generation of sustainable/ renewable energy professionals.
NESEA established the Kate Goldstein Fund for Emerging Professionals in Sustainable Energy in memory of Kate and the wonderful example she set for how NESEA wants their organization to support young members. This award supports recent graduates, enabling them to fully participate in, and benefit from NESEA programs. Rheannon says she had the opportunity to meet Goldstein when she visited Bensonwood a few years ago to give a talk and was very impressed with her knowledge and her passion for sustainable energy.
Rheannon will receive a pass to the BuildingEnergy Conference in Boston, plus hotel stay, and will be an honored guest at NESEA Night, the organization’s annual membership celebration, on March 4, 2015, where there will be a ceremony recognizing the award applicants and winners.
Founded in 1974, NESEA is the region’s leading membership organization promoting sustainable energy practices in the built environment.
