"This new store has been much anticipated, and we look forward to offering customers a unique and rewarding food shopping experience."
CHHS teacher is sustainability fellow
Chapel High School teacher Rob Greenberg has been named State Farm's Small Business Sustainability Fellow and has joined the Foundation for a Sustainable Community staff for the summer.
Greenberg is an earth and physical science teacher at CHHS, where he also serves as the faculty advisor for the Students United for Responsible Global Environment.
The fellowship, which was funded by the State Farm Good neighbor Citizenship Grant program, will allow him to focus his efforts on working with small businesses and nonprofits to improve their performance in regard to the triple bottom line of sustainability: environmental stewardship, social responsibility, and economic prosperity.
Greenberg will contribute to the creation of a first-of-its-kind metric that will measure the sustainability of small business practices.
"Having Rob's energy and knowledge will help the Institute for Sustainable Development continue to build great sustainability tools for small businesses and non-profits," said Chris Carmody, director of the Sustainable Business Initiative at the foundation.
In addition to teaching at CHHS, Greenberg is working on his Masters degree in Science Education at Montana State University, where his research focuses on authentic scientific student research.
"We are proud and excited to have Mr. Greenberg join us at the Foundation. His energy and expertise will be a great addition to the Foundation," said Aaron Nelson, executive director of the foundation and president and CEO of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Chamber of Commerce.
