Angel Payne of the Logan County Solid Waste District presented a recycling rebate in the amount of $1,500 for its active participation in the Campbell Hill Recycling Center, located along Sloan Boulevard across from the campus. The recycling center processed 168 tons of recyclables this year and donated 7.5 percent per ton to the school district, totaling approximately $1,500. The board authorized the rebate from Campbell Hill recycling to be deposited in the Warren Stevens Scholarship fund that will be awarded to a student next year.
