UniSource Energy Services recently honored two remarkable teachers who are participating in our program to educate students about energy conservation and sustainability.

Lee Nigg, a sixth-grade teacher at Havasupai Elementary in Lake Havasu City, and Roxanne Bell, a 6th grade Science teacher at Desert Shadows Middle School in Nogales were honored for their work to inspire the next generation of energy-conscious citizens.

In just two years, Nigg has facilitated nine Bright Students classroom presentations, reaching 216 students with valuable lessons on energy and conservation. Students love his engaging approach and commitment to energy efficiency.

In Nogales, Roxanne Bell, a sixth-grade Science teacher at Desert Shadows Middle School, has been a driving force behind the Bright Students program since 2014. She’s coordinated 10 classroom visits, educating more than 1,200 students on energy conservation. She is one of the longest active participants in the Bright Students program in UniSource service territory.

“The Bright Students program is very beneficial,” Bell said. “It makes kids think about the way they use and waste energy.”

“Without teachers like Mr. Nigg and Mrs. Bell, we couldn’t teach the next generation about sustainability and energy conservation,” said Michelle Morley, a Program Manager for Energy Programs. “We’re incredibly grateful for the tireless efforts of our partner teachers in advancing students’ understanding of these important topics.”
