Dayna Miller, Waste Pro USA’s Municipal Marketing Manager for North Central Florida, received a Certificate of Appreciation for generous support of the Cedar Key Lions Club’s community service projects. Waste Pro USA partnered with the Lions Club to establish a scholarship at Cedar Key School. Now entering its 3rd year, the Sustainability Scholarship recognizes local youth who promote environmentally-responsible practices within their communities while maintaining excellent academic performance. This year’s award is ear-marked for members of Cedar Key School’s Fifth Grade Safety Patrol. Waste Pro USA’s scholarship, along with funds from the Lions Club will help send the students on a field trip to Washington DC. Ms Miller remarked, “One of the most rewarding things I can do on behalf of Waste Pro is partner with the Cedar Key Lions Club to make sure that Fifth Grade Safety Patrol students are able to travel to Washington DC as our future leaders.”

Miller, who resides in nearby Alachua with her husband and two “furry” family members is Second Vice President of the Alachua Lions Club. Waste Pro’s “Caring for Our Communities” is a banner she proudly carries. Ms. Miller observed that Waste Pro’s philosophy matches Lions Protecting the Environment initiative. Working with Waste Pro USA’s Fanning Springs facility, she coordinates both trash and recycling efforts for Cedar Key’s annual Seafood Festival and Celebration of the Arts Festival. Recycling clam shells, aluminum cans, glass and plastic from City Park and the Festival venue reduces landfill impact and contributes to the City’s sustainability commitment.

Lions Club President Dale Register was quick to point out that Waste Pro USA is among a dozen community partners being recognized by the Cedar Key Lions Club this year. Also receiving Lions Club Certificates of Appreciation are: Mayor Heath Davis, City Council & Staff; Norm and Janice Fugate; Jeff and Lori Schleede of Cedar Key Seafood Distributors; Wilson Gas; Mike Smith of Cedar Key Aquafarms; Drummond Bank; Jordan Keeton and Shannon Sykes of 83 West; Leslie Sturmer of Cedar Key Aquaculture Association; Shawn and Caryn Stephenson & John Gill of Southern Cross Sea Farms.
