A lot of fun was had on Friday, December 11th when GLACC staff and supporters joined to celebrate 12 Years in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Energy! The celebration breakfast was held at R.E. Olds Transportation Museum and was well attended. Here’s to the next 12 years, many more gallons of petrol being displaced and a mid-Michigan with cleaner fuels and cleaner air!GLACC 12th for WP

2015 Clean Cities Honorees. Recognized for significant contributions toward the goal of reducing petroleum dependence by increasing the market for clean fuels, vehicles, and fuel economy solutions.

Amanda Galbavi (blonde) – recognized for her role as part of the initial cohort of Clean Cities University Workforce Development Program interns in 2010 – five years later, Amanda continues to work toward clean transportation solutions with international firm XPO Logistics (formerly Con-Way Trucking). Amanda’s internship with GLACC began the coalition’s CCUWDP-supported internship program and a tradition of GLACC supporting the development of young leaders in the clean transportation sector.

Christine Sptizley (brunette) – recognized for her role in securing official designation by the US DOE for GLACC in 2003. Christine drafted the program plan, took the plan through several revisions, and ensured the plan was accepted by US DOE. Without Christine’s important work twelve years ago, GLACC would not be here today!
