2012-2013 Recipient: Peggy Maschino, Associate Director of Business Affairs, Physical Plant  

Peggy MaschinoAnonymous nominator's comments: "Peggy Maschino has been an invaluable asset to the sustainability initiative at Indiana University Bloomington. She has coordinated a campaign to fully meter the campus, empowering the Physical Plant, the Campus Sustainability Advisory Board's Energy and Built Environment Working Group, and our office with the data necessary to document accurately, and with detail, our current energy consumption, as well as track and evaluate the success of behavior modification programming. She is a brilliant, passionate, and compassionate leader, and much of the current progress on the operational side of the university is due to her efforts. I am certain you'll receive many impressive nominations, but I hope you will consider her monumental efforts as worthy of recognition."
