Arundel teacher receives honors for environmentalism
Bill Moulden, an Anne Arundel County teacher and environmentalist, recently won the 2002 Tawes Award for a Clean Environment.
Moulden was chosen for the award, sponsored by the Maryland Petroleum Council and the Maryland Department of the Environment, because of his development of numerous ecological and environmental programs for youths.
He also was recommended to the Exxon Mobil Foundation for a grant. As a result, the foundation has given $5,000 to the Sister Schools for the Severn Initiative, in which elementary schools along the watershed are given tools for environmental experiments.
Early last month, Chris Martin of the foundation and Drew Cobbs of the Maryland Petroleum Council met with House Speaker Michael E. Busch and several area schoolchildren to present the grant.
