Bob Chance, a veteran environmental science teacher in Harford County and former Bel Air commissioner, has been selected by the governor for a four-year appointment to the Newsprint Recycling Board.
Chance's recognition acknowledges his 25 years of dedication to environmental education about solid waste.
As the founder of Susquehannock, the nation's oldest continuous recycling center, Chance is aware of the potential benefits of increased recycling in Maryland.
The board will oversee the implementation of recycled fiber by newspaper publishers as required by state law.
The group is chaired by Theodore Venetorilis of the Maryland, Delaware, D.C. Press Association.
