Conservation and recycling have long been a priority for the Emory & Henry College community, but these efforts would not be possible without the hard work of students, staff, and faculty who help promote this important cause.
Beth White has been coordinating the college’s annual effort to recycle unused electronics. White, who serves as the help desk coordinator for the College, works with her peers at East Tennessee State University to accept and process the recyclable items.
Beth has been the real behind the scenes heroine for this cause. She helps advertise the event, coordinate transportation and arrange volunteers.”

White’s hard work this year resulted in the largest e-recycle even in the college’s history.
For her hard work, the Staff Affairs Council honored White as the recipient of the June 2014 Blue & Gold Staff Award. The award was created to recognize outstanding Emory & Henry employees who go above and beyond the call of duty -- not only in their respective positions, but in the College community as well.
“These types of events are what make Emory & Henry College a special place, yet we often forget that these events would not be possible without people like Beth White to lead us,” said Brent Treash, Staff Affairs Council chair.
If you know an Emory & Henry staff member who has performed exceptionally in his or her role and would like to nominate that employee for the Blue & Gold Staff Award, contact the Human Resources Office (Joey Sword – ) by the last business day of the month.
