SSS speaks at Westlake Business Connections

Students for Solar Schools founder Adam Raudonis and VP Lisa Peng were invited to present their story about creating and developing SSS at the Westlake Business Connections meeting. The event’s theme is “Growing Business by Networking People.” The nationwide network Students for Solar Schools has built is what makes our project truly unique. As the Westlake High Solar Initiative nears completion, even more energy will be able to be devoted to helping other schools follow our model, and making sure each SSS leader is connected with fellow SSS members across the country. Thanks to Mr. Hellebrand for inviting us to the meeting!
