Andrew Ericson remembers his first exposure to sustainability and environmental science.
“I was in the second grade … and we made a song called ‘Pollution Solution,’” Ericson recalls. “It wasn’t the greatest song ever made, but we got on the radio and performed it at an Earth Day Festival in Madison. It was a defining memory for me at that time.”
Ericson’s passion for sustainability carried through to college at UW-La Crosse, where he coordinated the student-run Green Fund and participated in other environmentally focused organizations.
