Jun 30, 2014 11:48AM
Burlington County College (BCC), the first two-year college in the tri-county area to offer comprehensive green associate degree programs, is celebrating a milestone—the program’s first graduates. The class of 2014 included four graduates from the BCC Center for Sustainability & Alternative Energy, which developed curricula for its four green associate degrees and two certificate programs through funding from a NASA grant.
With the innovative degree and certificate programs, BCC is helping to meet the demand for trained workers in the growing field. Among the college’s first four green graduates is 21-year-old Palmyra resident Sharon Moore, who majored in sustainable energy studies. “Somebody suggested the program to me and said it was the newest thing,” she remarks. “I thought it sounded promising.” Moore is now working as a residential energy auditor.
