General Motors Spring Hill was one of 10 winners in the 2018 Governor’s Environmental Stewardship Awards.

Winners will be recognized for their achievements and positive impact on the state’s natural resources in an awards ceremony in Franklin, July 9th. Governor Bill Haslam and state Department of Environment and Conservation Commissioner Shari Meghreblian notified the winners last month.

“These recipients have gone above and beyond what’s required of them, and I commend their passion and drive to make Tennessee a more sustainable and innovative state,” Haslam said.

Through the years, the Governor’s Environmental Stewardship Awards program has recognized exceptional voluntary actions that improve or protect the environment and natural resources with projects or initiatives not required by law or regulation.

Other winners in 2018 include, Bells Bend Conservation Corridor, The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, Hytch, Whites Creek High School, Knoxville Partnerships for Low-Income Weatherization, Montgomery County Energy Upgrades, Window Cliffs State Natural Area in Putnam County and Crosstown Concourse in Shelby County.
