Greg Hamra, Senior LEED InstructorEverblue would like to congratulate one of our senior LEED instructors, Greg Hamra, for being nominated, and selected as a finalist, in the 3rd Annual Sustainable South Florida Awards in the Green Visionary category! 

The Green Visionary category recognizes an individual who has made an outstanding and lasting impact toward the sustainability of South Florida through advocacy, action, or education. This individual is a role model for other community leaders looking to enact positive environmental change. The finalists in the Green Visionary category actively drive this industry through innovation, developing and/or implementing new or existing green products, technologies, or methodologies.

Those nominating individuals were asked to provide five items to support their nominations. These materials were meant to address aspects of the nominee’s work that could not be described in the nomination application, such as news releases, media clippings, photos, reports, and publications. The application also asks a series of questions regarding the nominee’s contribution to sustainability and green building.

The Sustainable South Florida Awards is hosted by the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce. Winners will be announced at the Awards luncheon on Thursday, November 17, at Jungle Island’s Treetop Ballroom from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at $55 per person for members and $65 per person for non-members.

We’re very proud of Greg and excited for him to represent Everblue in South Florida, and around the world! Anyone who has worked with Greg can really appreciate his passion for sustainability, teaching, and life in general. He is affectionately referred to as “Uncle Greg” by several Everblue employees and students. With that kind of personable and friendly demeanor, it’s no surprise that professionals in this industry have acknowledged and supported Greg’s contributions. Congratulations, Uncle Greg! We wish you the best of luck in November! You’ll always be a Green Visionary to us!
