LITTLE ROCK — Officials say a 115-year-old building affiliated with the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service has received an award for being environmentally friendly.

Sturgis Hall received the certification Tuesday for leadership in energy and environmental design, or LEED. It was presented by Jason Hartke, the vice president of national policy for the U.S. Green Building Council, to Clinton Center operations director Debbie Shock in Little Rock.

The council is a nonprofit group that promotes environmental-friendly building construction.

Clinton Foundation Executive Director Stephanie Streett and school Dean Skip Rutherford also attended.

The Clinton School received a grant from Gov. Mike Beebe in 2009 to implement sustainable practices to reduce the building's environmental impact. Shock says utility costs have been lowered $38,000 annually and water use has declined.
