WSU Student Puts His Actions Where His Heart Is
"Think globally, act locally," is what Rich Reed says his motto in life is. He wants everyone, himself included, to get out of their mind that they can not do anything to help the environment. Reed, president of the Wichita State Green Group, wants everyone to do their part in fixing things locally to try to affect the rest of the world.
Rich Reed took interest in environmental issues in high school when on the debate team in 1992. He was given a topic on nuclear power and had to do research for the debate. "I had evidence that a can of beer had more radiation then an equal amount of glassified nuclear waste," Reed said. "But as a debater I had to be knowledgeable about a long list of green related topics beyond my specialization to debate effectively."
