Trees NC Board Member Earns Award from City

Trees NC Board member Bob Langston was recently recognized for his hard work and amazing efforts in fighting litter. Langston is only the third recipient to ever receive the Asheboro Pride Award.

City Manager John Ogburn addressed Langston during a public meeting saying, "You demonstrate that one person can make a difference--one committed person can make a difference."

An interpretive specialist with the North Carolina Zoo, Langston volunteers limitless hours in making Randolph County Big Sweep one of the most successful litter clean-up efforts in the state.  As the Big Sweep coordinator for the county, Langston works tirelessly to keep the area's watersheds litter free. In recent weeks Langston has coordinated efforts that accumulated over 5,000 pounds of litter removed.

Not only is Asheboro incredibly lucky to have such a dedicated advocate for the environment, but Trees NC is proud to call him a member of the Board.
