EPA hands trophy to Beautify CNMI!
By Marconi Calindas

Beautify CNMI! finally received its prestigious award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency last Saturday at the Sabalu Market in Susupe.

EPA Region 9 program manager Pat Young handed over the blue glass trophy to Beautify CNMI! after the group was named an environmental hero during the recently concluded EPA Region 9 Environmental Awards ceremony held earlier last month.

Since Beautify CNMI! was not able to send a representative to receive the award in San Francisco, Young personally brought the award to the CNMI. She was also in the region to attend several other engagements.

Beautify CNMI! founder Rep. Cinta Kaipat and officers Angelo Villagomez, Steve Hiney, and USDA Ken Kramer received the award.
