SALISBURY — A 2017 Catawba College graduate is the new sustainability outreach coordinator at the Center for the Environment.

Elizabeth Howard of Mocksville joined the center earlier this year to research and implement ways to strengthen the culture of sustainability on the Catawba campus.

Howard works to engage students and staff members through social media, educational materials and resources for workshops. She also researches ways to incorporate community-based social marketing strategies in the center’s marketing and helps plan and create material for the annual National Environmental Summit for High School Students at Catawba.

Howard earned an associate degree from Davie County Early College in 2013. She was a wildlife educator at the Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education in the summer of 2016 and a National Science Foundation intern through the Biosphere 2 REU Program in the summer of 2017.

She has made a number of scientific presentations throughout the country.
