SPEAKING OUT

LOOK AT WHAT SOME OF OUR MEMBERS HAVE SAID ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCE WITH KEEP IREDELL CLEAN!

"Involvement with KIC/KAB affords me the opportunity to work on a community, grassroots level addressing such vitally important environmental issues as clean air and clean water. It is imperative that we all learn to become better environmental stewards to protect and preserve our natural heritage and resources. Education will raise awareness and lead to more sustainable development. KIC's main mission is community education. Generally when people are better informed they make better decisions and we all benefit.
— Cindy Pitt


"The Keep Iredell Clean goals are closely related to my field of work as Sanitation Superintendent for the City of Statesville. But beyond that, I am personally concerned about our county's beautification and keeping our streets, highways and communities clean."
— Fred Morrison, City of Statesville


"We are an integral part of the Earth and its natural systems. Only when realizing ourselves as creatures of the Divine, recognizing our role as caretakers, showing concern for our fellow creatures and taking only that which is our equitable share, will we be successful as a species."
— John Robertson


"Back when he was in the funnies, Walt Kelley's Pogo Possum once quipped, 'We know quite a lot about that, but most of it is wrong.' As a society, we know a lot about environmentalism but much of it can stand some tweaking. I've been with Keep America Beautiful affiliates in Charlotte, Atlanta and now Iredell County since about 1981, mostly in public information roles. When folks know right, they tend to do right; that's part of KIC/KAB's job.
— Stan Thompson


"I believe that every citizen has a duty to protect the environment for the next generation. As I drive around Iredell county I can't help but notice the tremendous amount of trash that litters our highways and waterways. Serving as a board member of KIC/KAB allows me to participate in a movement that works to restore and preserve the natural resources of our beautiful county."
— Richard Lefevre, Mitchell Community College


"I have a magnet on my refrigerator door which says
'
We did not inherit the earth from our fathers. We are borrowing it from our children.'
I don't know who penned those words, but they constantly remind me how important it is to protect our environment. The mission statement of KIC/KAB includes the words, 'To protect natural resources and heritage.' As a board member of this organization, I have the opportunity to support and participate in activities that will help make this possible."
— Ann Kelly


"I am a member of Keep Iredell Clean because I love to see clear streams and rivers. More than anything, I am interested in a clean environment and healthy air to breath.."
— Victor Crosby


"I am a member of KIC because there are many ways to preserve and enhance our environment and our region. This organization helps to educate the public and takes an active role on issues that are not considered to be on the personal level, such as sustainable development, water quality preservation, and air quality reduction methods."
— Ron Smith


"I am a part of KIC because I feel it is important that everyone consider the choices we make in our daily lives and how these choices affect the world around us. KIC is helping to keep environmental issues in the spotlight. KIC is helping to educate the public, as well as, helping to provide opportunities for citizens to have the resources needed to make sound environmental discussions and to take action on these decisions."
— Nelson McCaskill


"As an Environmental Health & Safety Specialist with ASMO, I like to be involved in proactive programs and I feel that Keep Iredell Clean / Keep America Beautiful is a proactive way to help our environment. I am glad that KIC is part of the Hazardous Waste and Electronics Collection programs."
— Danny Yount


"As a child, I loved building moss and twig fairy houses in the woods. My mother taught me to love wild flowers, and early on I was intrigued with American Indians and their love and respect for this earth and nature. When KIC/KAB started, I felt a common bond of values that were set forth and I wanted to be a part of such a positive, good organization representing the goals I treasure."
— Sue Walser


"Many people think that protecting the environment is a nice thing to do ... if you have the time. A recent phrase in Sierra Magazine captures my feelings about KIC’s efforts to protect the environment. What many people fail to understand is that 'we owe our very existence to the environment, and that (if we fail to protect it) we are threatening what gives us life.' If you see me and other members of KIC picking up trash some Saturday morning, how about stopping to help? Remember, please don’t litter and be sure to join Keep Iredell Clean."
— James M. (Jim) Morrow, Mooresville


"I am honored to be a part of an outstanding group of citizens that care for and give so much to our community. Our world needs our help and KIC is a good place to be a part of the answer. As the recycling coordinator for Iredell County I appreciate the KIC board and members for all of their support and hard work."
— Carla Parks, Iredell County Recycling Coordinator
