Lacamas Lake Elementary School custodian wins Green Apple award

When Clark County announced its 2021 “Green Awards” for local environmental champions, a Camas school custodian had made the list. 

The county recently honored Lacamas Lake Elementary School custodian Nancy Stoy with its 2021 Green Apple award, given to an individual in a public or private school who has implemented sustainability initiatives, projects and programs. 

In a video tribute to Stoy and her sustainability work with Camas elementary students, Camas School District Superintendent Jeff Snell said Stoy exemplifies “the best of who we want to be in Camas.”

According to the Green Awards’ information, Stoy “engages students and motivates them to compost, recycle and conserve energy at school, instilling an enthusiasm for school involvement and for the environment.” 

Lacamas Lake Elementary School Principal Julie Mueller said in the  video about Stoy and her work with students that the custodian has fun with her work and takes pride in what she does to help the school be more sustainable. 

“She models that and the kids want to be a part of it,” Mueller said.
