Aggie For Environment Receives Beehive Five Under 25 Award
Paige Morgan, Marketing and Environmental Studies ’18, was just named a Beehive Five under 25. The prestigious recognition is given by the Utah Society for Environmental Education (USEE) each year to five young individuals who are “game changers in their communities.” These people take on leadership roles to make a difference for the planet, engaging communities to create major change.
Paige has made impressive changes at Utah State to help students and faculty become more environmentally conscious. As a recycle and waste intern for the Student Sustainability Office, Paige raised $13,000 in grants, built an on-campus thrift store from the ground up, and helped in many on-campus educational events. “My role just finished after two years,” Paige reported to the USEE. “And I put my heart and soul into it.”
Paige currently interns at Arena Online, LLC, a marketing agency for republican/conservative political clients. On the weekends, Paige and her husband enjoy volunteering at a local organic farm.
Paige’s advice for the next generation of leaders is “to simply listen and observe before you speak or act”. The USEE interview with Paige can be read here. And article from Utah Public Radio about the “Recycling Queen” can be read here.
