Ryan A. Raines Annual Memorial Energy Conservation Award
In 2009 the Energy Conservation Department has chosen a school for demonstrating outstanding energy conservation. A monetary award is given in memory of Ryan A. Raines who served as as energy mentor in the Energy Conservation Department with Hillsborough County Public Schools. The award is funded by an endowment created by Ryan's parents, Dwight and Laurie Raines and will continue for many years to come in honor of Ryan's passion for energy conservation.
Each year a school is chosen by the Energy Conservation Department to not only receive a permanent plaque to be proudly displayed at the school, but will also receive a $1,000 donation to be used for the students and staff.
